I've learned yet another lesson about blindly taking advice. When I ordered the pens for my zentangle sneakers I did it based on advice from another blogger who had done her own sneakers. My SIL, Carol, and I tried both the Identi-pen and the Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric. We liked the Identi-pen best because it's a marker.
Yesterday I got the Scotchguard and sprayed my sneakers........and the ink ran!
This photo is AFTER I fixed them. Look around that seam and you can see how they looked immediately after spraying. It ran to a pale gray. I went back over everything with the Gel Roller. It doesn't run. I know because I tested it. :)
See all the shadowing around the stem? That's the original ink. I went over everything with the Gel Roller.
The other bad news is that these shoes are a bit too big for me. They will be fine for winter with socks but not for summer wear. No problem! I'll just make another pair. I ordered them, and the Pentel Gel Roller For Fabric pens. I was looking for another project to do anyway and now I'm all set. Everything should be here by Thursday to start my new shoes.
