Mockups Creative Fun! R and G
Here is some fun you can have with your child/children! We received 2 pair of Mockups ($24.99 each). You might ask,"What are Mockups?" Let me tell you! Mockups are a 3D canvas shoe, approx. 6 1/2 - 7 inches long and they look like shoes. You can paint, marker, draw, glue, and decorate them any way you would like. We thought it was sort of neat that they came in a shoebox!
My daughters sat down and used markers on the first pair. They used water based markers so they could wipe them off and start over. Do you have a little designer in your home? Get them a pair of Mockups to design. Or perhaps you have a slightly older child that would like to design their own pair of shoes. Check out Mockups!
You will be able to access their design tips. Advice on using paints, markers, collage and even cutting! Then when you are all done you can upload a picture of your design and share it with others! Who knows, maybe other people will like your design and share it too!
A little about the Mockups Story:
Mockups are labor of love over three years in the making. They were designed, developed, and financed by Louie Gong of , one of the nation’s most successful custom shoe artists. Louie is a Native of mixed heritage (Nooksack, Squamish, Chinese, French, Scottish) who was raised by his grandparents, father, and stepmom in Ruskin, B.C. and in the Nooksack tribal community. Growing up in a home with no running water, Louie’s background serves as a stark contrast to his current success.
Be sure to look at the pics of the shoes we designed here. We are going to clean ours and re-use them! Take a minute to like the Mockups Facebook page and then follow them on Twitter! You can see some of the shoes people have designed here on their artwork page. If you would like a pair of Mockups you can order them directly from their site.
