A few days ago, Gene and I drove to Wathena, KS and had our photos taken by the wonderful Laura Benitz. When we got married, we didn't spend a lot on wedding photography, and while I'm not complaining because I knew what we were getting into, I am disappointed that I didn't ask for more portraits. (I promise to share when we see them)
I put on my thinking cap, and realized I could probably paint over the black and make white shoes. If it didn't work, I'd be out a grand total of $7.00 and my time.
I then painted 2 coats of Gesso over the shoes. I think my Gesso is a bit on the thick side, so it wasn't perfectly smooth, but I wasn't too worried about it. $7.00 right?
