Ever have trouble finding boots in the right color? Tried spray-painting them and ended up with a dry, cracked mess?A fantastic friend recently advised me to paint leather boots (and any other leather goods) with floral paint. This is a spray paint that is light and flexible enough to use on live flowers. Above are the Poison Ivy boots I painted for a friend, which turned out fantastic.
One thing though: Wear them while you paint them, and maybe stretch your foot around in between coats. I didn’t think of this, and while the paint did not crack at all, it started to split where the boots were stretched from walking. Next time I paint some boots, I’ll let you know if I was able to fix this problem.
The paint I used is called Design Master, and you can find it at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. In the stores near me, Michael’s had a better selection of colors and a slightly better price, but that may not be true everywhere. This color is “Holiday Green.”

Great alternative to spray rubber and plasti-dip or bootcovers, and cheaper than leather paint! Reminder that Michaels and JoAnns both frequently offer 50% off coupons and will match competitor coupons and offers!!

For those having issues finding the perfect Amethyst (or any other character’s) boots.

In the end, Captain America does not make the heroic sacrifice, thus further proving that Black Widow can handle the emotional weight of being a lead character. As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice.

"CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER" PROVES BLACK WIDOW’S READY TO GO SOLO

I didn’t even think about it at the time but yeah, Natasha being the one to reveal SHIELDS, and her own, secrets probably took more courage and self sacrifice for her than carjacking an alien in the middle of a galactic sized battle.

Scarabaeinae - the true dung beetles. Ancient Egyptians associated these scarabs with birth and renewal. Images depict the god of the rising sun, Khepri, as a dung beetle, rolling the sun over the horizon in the morning and chasing it back to darkness every night. (at The Field Museum)
