Glitter Shoes in Silver

Wagga Wagga, Aus...






Couldn’t help it. HAD to do another pair! I got these second hand. These had a beautiful, perfect set of silver heels, but the fabric was in a sorry state. They also had a bow at the back. By the time i got my hands on them, they were very mangy. I took those off as soon as i could (you can see the rust mark on the fabric).
Again the time taken was in the marking up. I had to do two coats of glitter to cover the marks on the fabric. Then I got the blade out (amazing what you do to ignore a tooth ache) to redefine the edges. Once that was done, out came my new fave – the silver sharpie! Went over ALL the edges to make them nice and sharp. Ta Da! Very happy with the outcome. Enjoy.
I want to thank themisslinds for the original instructions and photos, and emilypeace for lateral thinking. Wouldn’t have known how to get started without you.

Material Notes

Shoes, masking tape, GLITTER, multi-purpose glue, silver sharpie, spray varnish, patience.

      Fantastic compliment. THANKYOU. It’s so terribly easy… once you’ve taped it all up.

    Amazing! I need some Dorothy ones in ruby :)

    Well done, quick question – what’s a sharpie?

      Oh! Ruby shoes a must!
      Rather than try to explain a sharpie, i have added a photo for you.
      I’d love to see some ruby shoes ;)
