You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Cover the working area with wax (or palette) paper and remove the laces from the shoes. 
Step 2
Color starbursts with various Sharpie® markers onto the shoe, covering the whole surface.  
Step 3
Brush Vaseline onto the rubber trim of the bottom of the shoes to protect from staining.  
Step 4
Wear gloves and use the dropper to apply the rubbing alcohol to the shoes. Start by dropping the alcohol into the center of each starburst. As the marker bleeds, add more rubbing alcohol as needed. Let dry 24 hours. Wipe off Vaseline.  
Step 5
Seal the shoes by brushing fabric Mod Podge® on top and let them dry.
