This is a pair of blue plimsolls I painted with a TARDIS design to sell in my shop ([link]). They sold within a few days.

I used ordinary black and white acrylic to paint the design freehand, then sealed it all with waterproof spray. They took between three and four hours each to complete.

I am throwing my daughter a Dr Who themed 13th birthday party.
I am planning on making 2 pair of these shoes one for my daughter and one for her Whovian best friend!

Thank you so much for the idea!!

these look amazing. I referenced these to make my own pair and they turned out great!

Urban Outfitters online has two shades of blue that look very close to you picture.

They're probably too pricey for me to make any money off the finished product, sadly.

I would love these for my Granddaughter's birthday on May 9th...could you make them for me, and if so, what price?

I'm afraid I haven't been able to get any of the same plimsolls since I made these, so I'm not doing orders right now.

You're not planning to make more any time soon are you? :')

Not unless I can find more shoes that same shade of blue. :-)

you should sell this design to Hot Topic.

Ha! Thanks, but I can't sell a design I don't own. The police box image is free for anybody to use. :)

Can I ask you a few details about how you made these shoes? Did you use sharpie for the lines? How did you make the lettering so perfect?
Furious-Dee's avatar
Hey - no, it's all acrylic paint, and I freehanded the design. High quality, very fine paintbrushes are the secret. :)

Could you make a stencil for sale? This is so cool... Great work!

Honestly, I don't think I could repeat it well enough to make a stencil! I freehanded both shoes and somehow, they came out almost the same. Maybe print out the image of the TARDIS sign to use; I tried to replicate that font as closely as possible.
