Dr. Martens X Myrdin > Van Gogh’s Starry Night

My latest project:
Custom painted Dr. martens boots > Eleventh pair.

I combined two passions of mine;
painting/designing & Dr. Martens shoes !

It’s a long process to custom paint leather shoes.
Because one needs to keep in mind that the leather has to endure a lot when used.
So i used special leatherpaint after i thoroughly cleaned and sanded the leather.

This is the result of the eleventh pair of Doc Martens that i upcycled.
My challenge was; could i paint a pair of boots with the Starry Night theme of Vincent Van Gogh!

The ingrediënts :

1
Step One :
In Paintshop i placed the painting on the shoe.

2

Step Two :
I painted the leather in the color ‘old-canvas-ochre/beige’ as a sober background,
and with a thin black Posca i sketched the basic lines on the leather.

Mijn broertje is niet meer

“Ikke Hent” zei hij als peuter als men vroeg hoe hij heette
In die tijd wilde ik met hem trouwen

Na een roerig leven was de koek op
45 is hij geworden
En vandaag nemen we afscheid van hem
Ieder op onze eigen manier

Vincent
