  • The fluorescent dayglow paints look best on light-coloured textiles and even glow under UV black light!

How it is done:

  • Use a pencil to draw one or more shapes onto the sides of the shoes.
  • If you wish, seal off some areas like the soles using adhesive tape. Paint the shapes using a fine, soft brush and textile paint.
  • Use the Textil Neon Liner to add accent lines, for example along the seams. Unlike the Liner, you can use the Textil Neon paint to paint larger surfaces, for example the heel area. We also recommend sealing off areas like the sole with adhesive tape before starting so that the paint line remains as clean as possible.
  • Leave the paint and liner to dry completely. In order to ensure the design is protected against rain, we recommend setting the paint in the oven too: Preheat the oven, place the shoes on a mesh shelf covered in baking paper and set in the oven for 8 minutes at 150 °C.
