So I've been itching to make one of those pairs of glitter shoes everyone seems to be making these days
I still need to buy the shoes, but I was at Michaels today and saw glitter acrylic paint.
Most of the tutorials I have read use either mod podge or glue with loose glitter, and then an acrylic sealant spray at the end to hold in the glitter. So I was just wondering if any of you wonderful crafty individuals have tried glitter paint on your shoes? Does it stay as well and is it as sparkly?
At Michaels they had two brands of glitter paint, Martha Stewart (and her fine loose glitter has been on a lot of tutorials I've seen so that's good) and FolkArt's Extreme glitter. I want a champagne-y gold glitter and I didn't seem to find that in Martha Stewart's colors (Sandstone looked promising but the actual glitter pieces didn't look right), so I bought Champagne in FolkArt.
Here's what the FolkArt bottles look like (it's not those big tubs, although maybe it's the same product?)
So I guess my main questions are:
1) have you used acrylic glitter paint (FolkArt or Martha Stewart) and does it work well on shoes? Is it glittery (I want super sparkly
Or should I just buy the loose glitter and use mod podge?
2) have you used Martha Stewart's glitter paint in Sandstone and does it look like the color on the bottle? Does it look like a golden champagne? Or reddish (which is what it seemed like) Something like this? http://www.heels.com/womens-shoes/anderson-gold-glitter.html
3) Do you have any method you've tried that you just recommend to get super sparkly (but sturdy that won't drop glitter everywhere) shoes, and I just shouldn't bother with over-thinking it
Paint just seems easier than mixing all that glue so just wondering if anyone had any experience with it
Thanks so much for any help!
