I don't wear heels, but these make me wish I did.  Wink

AWE-some work! Wish I could wear heels!!! Had an car accident that left my right ankle with poor tendons, on flats and sneakers for me. LOL I envy a nice heel though. LOL

What a great idea.  I love all of them, especially the one with the matching button. Smiley

Wow, thanks everyone! I'm glad you all like them and I hope you go and make your own pair. I don't wear heels hardly ever- they hurt my tender footsies and I'm not a very "girly-girl" and I don't have a good reason to dress up very often. Which is why I didn't mind risking ruining the first pair I painted, since I don't really use them. I do wear heels more now than I used to because they just look so cool, and I admit that I like the attention that the added decoration causes Smiley

As far as the type of paint and varnish..yeah, I just use cheap craft acrylic paint and an acrylic water based sealant. I used the same sealant I use to seal my canvas paintings, mostly because it was all I had around. I am not sure how long the paint will last on the shoes, since like I said, I don't really ever wear mine (maybe once a month or so). I have not seen any noticeable wear or cracking or flaking or anything. Both the goat ones and the one with the buttons still look exactly like they first did.

If anyone has any better ideas on what kind of paint and sealant to use, let me/us know! It would be cool to start selling these in my local second-hand punk rock store. I would just feel bad selling something that might not last long :\
