So, I've been lurking around craftster for awhile now....and after looking at all the reconned shoes I decided to try my hand at it. I wanted some custom glittery heels. So...I went to goodwill and hobby lobby and got some cheap (but really nice) heels and some pretty Martha Stewart glitters.
 
   

After the first coat of glitter. Sorry about the flash....best way to get the right color...


First coat still


Second coat. At this point to my eye they looked good....


Close up of glitters. Second coat.




Here you can see where the camera has shown me that, upon closer inspection, these need a third coat (due to image resizing I have circled the dark spots to make them easier to see)


Third coat and sealed!


They're so pretty and shiny! I'm so happy with how they turned out!  Grin

Thanks! I really like them. I've wanted to custom glitter my own shoes for awhile. Much more bank friendly to custom do them too.

These look fantastic! What adhesive did you use for the glitter? And what sealant?

So far I've just used mod podge (the glossy one) as both glue and sealant. Since the bottle says it is both adhesive and a sealant I figure it should be ok. If not we'll deal with that when we get to it Smiley
