The new school year is just around the corner, and what better way to start it off than with a burst of creativity? Personalizing your shoes with Posca markers is a fantastic way to stand out and showcase your unique style. 

What do you need? 

  • A pair of plain canvas or fabric shoes,      
  • Posca markers in various colors and tip sizes,   
  • Pencil and eraser (optional, for sketching your design),   
  • Painter's tape (optional, for creating clean edges)   


How do you start with this? 

  1. Find a well-lit and ventilated area where you can confortably work on your shoes. Lay down some newspaper or a drop cloth to protect your surface from any marker spills. 
  2. Before diving in, consider sketching your design on paper to get a sense of how it will look on your shoes. This step isn't mandatory, but it can help you avoid mistakes and make adjustments before applying the markers directly to the shoes. 
  3. Give your shoes a good wipe down to remove any dirt, dust or oils that might interfere with the marker's adhesion. A clean surface will ensure that your desing stays vibrant and lasts longer. 
  4. Add whatever colours, lines or drawings you prefer. 
  5. Let the designs dry. This might take a couple of hours! 
  6. Once everything is dry, get ready to step into the new school year with confidence and style.
