Paint markers and Vans

Posted by at 05:43 Read our previous post

If you like Vans then you must have seen these:

So i was asking my self how i could make my own and what i needed. And look what i found! These amazing Painted Vans.

So what do they use? They used for these sneakers.Paint Markers, usually a very good option for customized sneaker projects. These can be found at your local art supply store or online. If you go to an art supply shop you can usually test the paint markers before you buy them.
Some Paint Markers release very weak paint and some are extremely watery. These types do not work well for sneaker art. Make sure the markers you choose have the thickest consistency for the best results.
Paint Markers are available in various tip sizes: fat to skinny. Based on your sketch, choose the proper tip sizes for your image. You want to be able to control lines, fill space and define curves. The thinner the tip, the easier it will be to draw details and get to those hard- to-reach spaces. The thicker the tip, the more paint you can spread to large areas.
Spray paint can also be used. However, if you use spray paint as a base, make sure you get skinny caps to keep the aerosol from covering detail you want to show. Spray cans are harder to control and best used on large canvases. I advise beginners against using spray paint for their custom sneaker project. Take my advice and stick to paint markers if perfection is what you seek.
