Hi kcokla, may i know which country are you from?
I am from Singapore.
By the way, what kind of paint and marker you use for your customise sneakers?
Australia, im singaporean coincidentally! and speaking of singapore, i doubt ur a fan anyway, but s.h.e will be in singapore on friday haha i wish i could go i guess that would apply if your interested and chinese i guess. o well
back to topic.....
The best known paint, supposedly is angelus, im not sure if u guys can get it in singapore but i suggest u check, also turtlefeathers.com sells them, i think thats the site?
or you could use ebay,
as for me: since no retailers in australia have angelus im using Derivan matisse in which i mix with a thing called " medium textiles " by jo sonja's thats to thinnen the paint and ive never used markers before only some perminant markers to clean up edges at times, im no proffesional or aynthing compared to some others like sekure on this forum.
Hi kcokla, i use acrylic paint. As for marker, i use normal permanent marker.
But I have just try spraying a coat of fixative and it seem better.
i would suggest you use something to thinnen your acrylic, its not your applying too much, its its naturally thick and when its thinner, it makes it more smoother and easier to dry, and youll need a few coats after each dry, something like 3 coats
trick is so its not too thin so it looks shit, but not too thick to avoid cracking,
if you read the guides to customizing they suggest mixing with acetone which thinnens it and so forth.
overall suggestion i suggest u experiment with paints of differnt brands, read the guide and tips etc, and keep trying!
what type of primer should i use?
wouldnt know, i suggest u ask some of the more experienced around here and check the tips and so forth at the beginning of this topic if you havent
