POSCAs are perfect for personalising your outfits and here we show you how to Customise Nike AF1 with POSCA pens. Customised Nike Air Force 1 are a massive trend, with some Insta and TikTok influencers setting up businesses to create custom sneakers.
With the power of POSCA you can do this yourself. Giving these iconic trainers your own unique look.
Customise Nike AF1 with POSCA – get started
For this simple black and white brush blossom design you will need masking tape, a black POSCA brush tip and a 7M black POSCA marker.
First, take your laces out. Then you will use your masking tape to seal off any areas where you don’t want your POSCA pen to go on. The custom Nike look is for clean, crisp lines so we don’t want any stray marks where there shouldn’t be.

Perfect your brush blossom
We filled in our front and back panels with a simple but effective brush POSCA blossom design. The brush blossom technique is very loose and expressive and each flower looks different. However here are some step by steps to get you started.
To start hold your brush at a flat angle on the surface.
Then swipe your black brush tip up to create a painterly petal shape.
Underneath your first petal. Hold the top quarter for the brush tip, again at an angle, and swipe down.
You will see that by changing the direction and angel of your brush you will get different effects.
Now repeat this downward stroke petal next to the second mark.
To make a final petal, hold the top of the brush at an angel and swipe up.
Now you can add a flower centre by using the very tip of the POSCA brush marker to make a little central paint dot.
Cover those sections with the black brush blossom design.
Once you have finished your POSCA design, you can protect your custom sneakers with a leather varnish.
Once your leather varnish is dry you can take the masking tape off.
Now you can go out and show off your artistry and style with your customised trainers.
