DIY Bangerang Boots Babe – Grape Juicy style
- Pleather or Leather unlined boots
- Jewels, buttons, charms, embellishments etc.
- Thick paper or plastic sheets
- Exacto knife
- Cutting mat
- Tarp or painting cloth
- Spray paint
- E600 [or another glue that will work on leather, plastic, and metal]
- Soldering iron
Step 1: Draw a design [design 1 will be used all over your boot] onto your paper or plastic sheet
Then using a 2nd sheet, draw a focal design [design 2] that you will cut out of the boot, exposing your skin. This design should be between 4-7inches long and no wider than 2 inches.
Step 2: Place paper onto cutting mat and cut out both designs with an exacto knife
Step 3: Next, lie your boot’s down flat and trace design 2 onto each side of your boot. [Make sure to try your boots, look into a mirror, and ensure that they are symmetrical and even on both boots.]
Step 4: Heat up your soldering iron and burn out the design. Make sure that you unzip the boots when you lie them down flat so that you do not burn through both sides.
Step 5: Once you have burned out the design, take your boots outside and place them onto a tarp or painting cloth. Hold down your design 1 stencil and spray paint the print onto your boots.
Step 5: Once the paint has dried, take your embellishments, put E600 onto the backs of them, and place onto your boots, hold for 5 seconds.
TIP: A good way to make your design the same on each boot is to alternate each time you place an embellishment onto them.
Step 6 [optional]: Spray a high gloss top coat evenly over the entire boot.
Step 7: Wait for 24 hours to dry
Step 8: Boot’s are made for walkin’ and yours are now a Mile High and Built of Glamour, so get to steppin’ sweetheart
