This week I painted up a pair of Devonshires inspired by an extant pair held in Manchester City Galleries.
I used Angelus Leather paints to color the latchets and heel blue, and also mixed colors to paint the floral sprig on the toe. Blue bias binding completed the shoe, along with the round rhinestone slide buckle, for a little bling.
