with only 9 minutes left to april 6th, lets hope this works;;;
i took one boring pair of mary janes with super heels and spray painted them pink. not satisfied, thinking glitter would do the trick, i hole punched some silver and teal foil paper and modge podged the "holes" over the tops and used the remainder of the paper to do the heels and sole. end product - shoes that are louder than the band they will be preforming in!!! Kiss

I second the first comment!  Bright and shiney!  I almost bought a pair of shoes at the thrift store like that today(but plain black).

I love the way that you used the paper you punched the holes from for the heels. That looks really cool!

They have a neat "negative" effect going on.

There's too much excellent work in this darn challenge.  Everyone's making my vote so difficult...

I kind of like the bottom half where you used the paper with the holes punched out rather than the actual holes.  It looks really really nifty!!

Just a quick question - are the shoes leather, and if so, how in the hell did you get the paint to stick to them?! I fear my sneakers shall forever be white until I solve this problem.

I am scared of dye. Yes I am. *hangs head in shame*

Acrylic paint will not stick, and neither will spray paint. Before I tried those, I had a go at shoe polish, but it only made them grey.
What I may do in the next study break is to strip the paint off, remove as much of the original white as possible (go go wire brush!), and give it half a dozen coats of polish. If that doesn't work...well, I may just scream.

If anyone has any other ideas, they would be most welcome. Smiley

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Beet juice, eh? That sounds good, because then the lining would go the same  colour, wouldn't it? Pretty red!
Thanks for that. Smiley
