I started with this pair of suede booties from Target:
I used these supplies from JoAnns:
|Mod podge, a large paint brush, loose gold glitter, and painter's tape (forgot to add him in the photo)|
Next I mixed the glue and the mod podge together with the brush:
Then I taped the areas of the shoes that I did not want to be glitter-i-fied. (Forgot to photograph that step. Feel free to use your imagination).
After that step, I painted the first layer of glitter glue onto the shoes (Also forgot to photograph painting it on the shoes so here is a photo of the glue swiped across paper so you can the idea:
After painting the first layer, I waited about an hour and painted another layer. Waiting. More waiting. Psssssssssssssssss (blowing on them to dry faster). Afterwards I painted on them in spots where it was missing a little glitter. Then I waited more. And more.
In total it was about 2.5 layers (the .5 is where I just spot painted the shoes)
I'd say this was a 4 hour project at least, but with my easily distracted track record, it probably took closer to 7. Though a lot of this is due to the shoes needing to dry. I'm going to buy a can of finishing spray/sealant to spray on the shoes and I think after that, THEY'LL BE READY TO WEAR.
They're gorgeous I know :)
Let me know if you have tried this project or something similar and how it turned out for you!!
