    Painted my MoW Boots...

    Wrapped up my paintjob on my 2012 MoW boots and figured I should show them off. This was my first time painting any form of clothing, but the material was not that much different than a 3D canvas.

    Mojo spikes painted and formed to fit the 2012 MoW boot. I felt like the spikes turned out good enough considering the shape difference.

    Nice job, my own turned out pretty much the same as your's apart from the toe spike set up, did that myself using aluminum flat bar and some pointed wood dowels,
    the front toe part i didn't bend so i filled each side with epoxy putty, giving it a more square look up front.
    nice paint job

    I kinda feel like I was borderline too far on the grim and dirt. I used some watered down charcoal/brown as a dirt wash to build up in the cracks and edges.

    This was probably the most fun I have had so far.

    Thank you.

    I still need to spray them down with fixatif to lock in all the work.
