Painted shoes (2)

Weeks are flying past and filled with creating artwork for my exhibitions, playing golf and...painting two new sets of golf shoes!
After I realised I didn't prepare the first pair ("Glowy Golden") properly which resulted in peeling paint, I removed the paint completely with acetone, now including also the top white layer on the leather. Then I repainted the 4(!) layers again and waterproofed them. A very time-consuming process, but hey, if you want to look funky on the golf course, you have to sacrifice something. It was much easier to do these two new pairs. The feedback from my golf buddies are very positive and I already received a commission!
What do you think of my creations?
