These look fantastic! What did you use to seal them off?

Woops, read your comment wrong. I thought you ask who I stole them off of, haha!

I first put a layer or two of Mod Podge (which dries clear), then use a water resistant acrylic sealer. It comes in a spray can.

Thank you!
There was a DD :iconchumpshoes: did a while ago and my sister fell in love with them. She begged me to make her a pair and since her birthday was coming up I got permission from ChumpS. and did a fan art of them.

Well, although her birthday is past, I do make custom shoes. If you would like a pair (totoro, Miazaki, or other) please feel free to send me a note and we can correspond more!

I might just have to take you up on that offer.

Great, I'd love to work with you. I usually sell these for around $45, however you will need to mail me shoes or be ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE on your shoe size. It sucks if you get really sweet shoes and they end up being the wrong size.

I'll take that into consideration. For the quality of the shoes by what I've seen, that sounds like a reasonable price. I'll have to wait for some graduation money before I can order, but otherwise I have no issue purchasing shoes.

People are low on money, but they should still be able to enjoy art.
Sounds good. Please feel free to shoot me a note for more info, and I will include my email to that. Also, thank you for faving and watching!

:iconbwavoplz: Love them!! These are totally the cat's Pajamas!!

Your Mei and Totoro look more like they do in the movie than mine, too. :)
I absolutely love the way you put in the foot prints and soot sprites!!
It is WAY more organized than mine, too! Very clever!! I will put a thumbnail of these
on my original shoes; totally neat. I'm ever so flattered.

Thank you!
On the left pair of shoes it has hand prints instead of foot prints.
I did what I could, I'm glad you like it. The lack of room with the laces made it a little harder to work with. Some how it has become impossible to find slip on shoes!
Again, thank you for your feedback.

Slip-ons crack more anyway!
I think what you picked was a great choice!

Paint more of them. :)

Do they really? Well that's good to know.

I am! Actually 2 people have asked for pairs.

I'm having trouble with the sealer I use, it peals in areas sometimes, or occasionally globs. What kind do you use? Is it a spray or painted on?

Yes. I have had 'em; they crack right across where your
toes bend when you walk. I prefer a tennis shoe or chuck. They have more give
due to the laces being right there.

That's totally cool you have some orders! Come join my group and add them! :D

I use Delta Ceramcoat exterior/interior satin varnish. I also have some in gloss
and sparkle. It's a very thin brush-on sealant. It's water-proof, too. Just do one tiny, thin
coat and then let it dry a while (like-- an hour) and brush on another tiny, thin coat.

I sometimes use Mod Podge with spray acrylic sealer. I do prefer to use that for hats, headphones and cellphone cases, though. It's also waterproof.
