DIY: Gold Leaf Leopard Rainboots
It rains 3 days out of the year here in sunny SoCal, but on the days it does it’s a torrential downpour and I am NEVER prepared! I can never find my umbrella or suitable wet weather footwear. And of course on those rainy days I usually have a laundry list of errands and spend the day running around the city looking like a wet dog. #NotCute I promised myself I’d be prepared for this season. Custom rainboots are a must and Krylon’s gold leaf paint pen makes this project delightfully easy!

Materials: Rainboots (these available at Payless for $29.99) and…
Krylon’s 18kt. Gold Leafing Pen (<- This pen is AMAZING!! You MUST add it to your craft stash.)
Use your gold leafing pen to personalize the design on your boots. You can draw polka dots or hearts or a coll tribal print. The design is completely up to you. I chose to create my own leopard print pattern…obviously.
If you a leopard print design is your thing than you can easily create it by drawing “C” and “I” shapes. Go over your shapes with a zig zag stroke to create the furry texture.
