Ever have trouble finding boots in the right color? Tried spray-painting them and ended up with a dry, cracked mess?
A fantastic friend recently advised me to paint leather boots (and any other leather goods) with floral paint. This is a spray paint that is light and flexible enough to use on live flowers. Above are the Poison Ivy boots I painted for a friend, which turned out fantastic.
One thing though: Wear them while you paint them, and maybe stretch your foot around in between coats. I didn’t think of this, and while the paint did not crack at all, it started to split where the boots were stretched from walking. Next time I paint some boots, I’ll let you know if I was able to fix this problem.
The paint I used is called Design Master, and you can find it at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. In the stores near me, Michael’s had a better selection of colors and a slightly better price, but that may not be true everywhere. This color is “Holiday Green.”
Great alternative to spray rubber and plasti-dip or bootcovers, and cheaper than leather paint! Reminder that Michaels and JoAnns both frequently offer 50% off coupons and will match competitor coupons and offers!!

Thank you, that’s so cool.
I got a few requests to do the layout for the Egbert house after doing the Strider apartment (and oh my god, you guys, I’m still like. Reeling in shock at the number of notes on there. Why are you all so amazing. ;___; ) so I thought I’d give it a whirl. Unfortunately, the fact that there are multiple levels and rooms and everything is so complicated to lay out, so I really hope it’s not too confusing and bluh. D: I wanted to fit everything in there, and this was the only way I could figure out how to put it.
Also, Mr. Egbert. I love you so much, but your room is a right pain in the ass. Gotta give me something to work with here, man! John’s reaction flash is not cutting it.
