  4. Put on boot covers or old shoes, and dip one foot into one paint color.Trace the
    design you drew in step 2

  5. Depending on the design, dip your other foot into the next paint color as needed
  6. Designer Tip: For those working on this project alone, it’s best to switch boot covers or shoes when dipping into the third, fourth and fifth colors to avoid mixing colors or creating a slipping hazard.

  7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the design is complete

  8. Remove the boot covers and wash off any paint that may have gotten on your body using water and a rag
