SERIOUSLY?!?!  My two favorite things...glitter and heels.  Guess I'll be hitting the thrift store for those super faded or damaged heels I usually pass up! 

Nicely done!

Thank you! Glitter and heels are 2 of my favorite things. I would suggest to anyone who is making some, to keep in mind that the way the glitter looks in the tube will be the way it looks on your shoe (after about 3 coats). I blended 3 Martha Stewart glitters that are finer because they're intended for scrapbooking. Personally I think the finer glitter looks more like what you would see on the store bought glitter heels (I do own a pair of the store bought) than what a coarser glitter would. Of course it is all up to personal tastes. I would love to see any glittered shoes that anyone makes. Smiley

Yes, juxtapoet any brand *would* have worked, however there was not any comparable cheap glitter. I'm not saying you have to go out and use the Martha Stewart glitter, it's just what I used because it was exactly what I was looking for...

those are so amazing. Does the modge-podge do a good job of sealing so that the glitter doesn't shed? Some I have seen in the store look like they would leave a trail everywhere.

Well I haven't worn them out yet, but I think they're sealed down pretty well. I do expect some extra glitter to come off here or there but I don't think it would be too much.

Hi, total newbie here but long time lurker.  I really want to make some myself but I'm not sure what mediums to use, there's so many different kinds of modge podge!  Do I want to use gloss (not the paper kind?) and then top it with the outdoors one?  Or finish with acrylic spray?  I read somewhere that modge podge is just like pva, could I use that to adhere the glitters and then finish it with acrylic spray?  I want to make sure they are waterproof to hold up to the British weather.
