The fact that he freehanded all of this with no tape is impressive!

Ratingz my G! The thing that amazed me is your level of attention and i love how you shared your specifications about the proportions of paints/duller etc. It makes all the difference when revealing the final product. Excellent customisation bro and btw good freehand skills i love the fact that you did all that and NOT a piece of tape used. AMAZING like if you agree guys credit where credit is due!!!!100%FIRE^^

I got a couple questions. I know you're supposed to do 2-3 light coats for the base...but for the little black lines (design) does that have to be repeated 2-3 times as well? Is a finisher necessary on all the parts you paint? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just got a pair of kicks, and a set of Angelus Paints.

Hey! Really good video. I have a question, do you use an special varnish or something like that at the end of the process?

When you're going to draw stuff on it, can you go all over it with the finisher without fading the lines you drawn?

Author — Babette Beijma


I’m definitely going to try that and see how they come out

Im about to cop nothing but easily customizable kicks off the clearance rack and get some of this angelus stuff and rock nothing but customs.

Maybe Angelus could sponsor him and kick down a mixing cup so he doesn’t have to pour paint onto the box. Great custom!! Awesome finished shoe and design. Three thumbs up.

Hey I have A question! Can I paint over the sun/night light reflecting Nike checks on my sneakers with a clear matte finish to stop the reflections from glaring constant?

Question: Once you've painted them do you go back over the painted parts with a sealant of any kind?
