Pointe Paint provides a convenient, clean and easy way to dye (and matte!) your pointe shoes or canvas technique slippers. It's easy-to-use and contains water-based pigments. One bottle will paint 1 pair of pointe shoes.

Pointe Paint, PointePeople's first product, is a dedicated applicator that enables dancers to conveniently dye their pointe shoes, canvas technique slippers or any other dance shoes.  If you are or have been a dancer you may have used one of several dying techniques - from Calamine lotion, to permanent markers to make-up foundations.  These DIY methods are not only expensive, they are also cumbersome and in some cases harmful.

Pointe Paint was designed keeping the dancer in mind.  We abided by three crucial principles in bringing you Pointe Paint:


Pointe Paint is made up of water-based pigments.  If you were to have an accident while dying your shoes, the paint will come right off with soap and water.

Convenient and Quick

Unlike other dying methods, the Pointe Paint method does not require garbage bags, paint brushes, sponges or gloves.  All you need is the product, your shoes and a paper towel to rest the shoe on while its being painted.

Pointe Paint can be applied on one shoe within two to three minutes and dries off within 20 to 30 minutes.  Other methods can take up to an hour.

Portable and Easy-to-Use

The specially designed Pointe Paint bottle allows the dancer to apply the dye on the go. Whether you are going to an audition, competition or a performance you can throw the Paint in your bag and forget about it.  The bottle is secured with a cap that only comes off when pulled firmly. Moreover, the sponge applicator is attached to a valve, which prevents the Paint from flowing unless the sponge is pressed firmly against a surface.

This product is a labor of love, from one dancer to another.  We certainly hope you enjoy your Pointe Paint!
