But the come-up wasn't easy — an accident back in 2016 left him with serious injuries and a new set of obstacles to overcome.

So like, what happens when you clean the shoe? How'd you go about cleaning it to make sure the paint stays?
mendezboy tv (2 months ago)
if your using acrlyic paints like angelus paints it'll stick on to the shoe and be water resistant the only way to take off the paint is with acetone
theskullgamer 78 (3 months ago)

+mendezboy tv perfect, thank you very much for explaining me......
mendezboy tv (2 months ago)
+theskullgamer 78 no you see he doesn't draw it with the vinly sheets and sticky paper you can get a image off the internet and put it on the paper its like if your printing it once your done you get out all the pieces and it gives it that drawn look
theskullgamer 78 (2 months ago)
+mendezboy tv thank you thank you very much,what i want to know is.....he draw with a stencilon sticky paper? how tha draw transfer to the shoes?
mendezboy tv (2 months ago)
