Today was the 1st “Colour Remix: Sneaker Customizing 101” workshop with SBTG for Vitamin Water. Taking place in Singapore at the Vitamin Water Pop-up store at ION Orchard Mark Ong aka SBTG instructed 12 participants on the basics of sneaker customizing in a 3 hour session. The group was broken into partners who each worked on one shoe of the pair. Mark’s goal was to let the 12 people discover how easy customizing can be despite your lack of artistic skills.
Mark covered 5 main steps of customizing: tools of the trade, how to prep a leather sneaker for painting, how to paint the base coat, using vinyl decals as stencils for graphics, and finishing. Each person was able to hear some of Mark’s insights on sneaker custom design aesthetics and ask questions related to customizing. After the success of this event there will for sure be more sessions by SBTG and Vitamin Water so stay tuned to PaintOrThread.com for the next private event.
