I made this awesome pair of ruby red slippers. I took a cheap pair of black ballet-style slippers, painted red glitter glue on them, and then sprinkled sparkly red glitter all over. The only problem is now when I touch them the glitter comes off. What kind of sealant can I use to keep on the glitter? Undecided

WHen I was in dancing school, we used aerosol hairspray for a quick fix on our various sequined costume pieces.  BUt I's sure any kind of spray varnish would work.

Girl, what's wrong with spreadin' a little glitter everywhere you go?

Seriously, I don't see why a little mod podge wouldn't do a fine job of sealing it all in  Wink

I did a similar project with a pair of red Chuck Taylors in high school.  Totally rocked but I trailed glitter everywhere I went.  Never even thought about trying to seal them.
