Okay ladies, I had to redo my painted heels...
They had cracked pretty bad but I discovered a wonderful tip. Paint the shoes with fabric GLUE
first and that helps prevent cracking, it really works!!!
I ended up making what were the brown button ones into something else....
So here are the redo's and one new pair Smiley

The brown flats are a bonus...I had originally painted them the turquoise color but decided I wanted turquoise pumps instead... so I painted these a simple brown so I can wear them more often.

Sorry for all the pics but I'm really excited about my shoes!!!!

The original shoes are under my post New Painted Heels (Very Pic Heavy)
Here is a link to that topic...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229969.0

The pink ones were hard to recreate, this version is darker than the first pair but it's close.


Pics are gone, sorry!!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

The heels on the green ones are adorable!  Do they get scuffed?

I haven't wore the green ones out yet cuz I just finished them but I did wear the blue ones to church and accidently scrapped the back of the heel on a stair and that tore the paint so I just repainted it. So far that's the worst that's happened with these.

You are very welcome!
My thinking is if someone has the time and kindness to post a comment the least I can do is reply Smiley

Thanks! And just a small update, I've worn the brown flats like 5 times now walking for hours and they have held up beautifully! I'm more careful with the heels but I've worn each pair out at least twice and all the pairs have held up pretty well, I'm surprised and happy Smiley
