Hey guys,

I have been browsing through craftster threads for hours trying to figure out what to seal my painted shoes with and I am at a complete loss. Lots of people have posted questions asking but have recieved no answers, lots of people mention sealer but don't specify brand or type.

The Deal: I bought a pair of white .. i dont know pleather or some type of plasticy/fake leather material... heels at WalMart with the intention of painting them yellow for my Moulin Rouge costume that I am making for a Bachelorette party next weekend.

I used jesso as a primer, because in art class we always used it if we are painting on unusual surfaces (i.e. like a shoe). Then I used a yellow acrylic paint of a fairly good quality.

SOOOOO WHAT SHOULD I SEAL THEM WITH? I read in one thread that outdoor modpodge might be good? Buttt I dont know if I can find that around here, in fact I have never seen modpodge in a store ever. I live in Ontario Canada and maybe I just havnt been looking for it.

Thanks for any help that anyone can offer me. I know that people must know the answer to this.

Oh AND P.S. Will sealer give them a glossy finish?? I really want a glossy finish, right now they are matte as heck. Will a spray sealer give them a glossy finish? Im such a newbie at this I have never reconed shoes before. I also read that some of the sealers people used left their shoes sticky?

Oh and furthermore there is no general type of craftstore in my dumb town. We have a walmart and hardware stores.

Walmart sells modpoge! Just look for the crafty area with the fabrics and stuff. It comes in like matte and I believe a glossy finish. Not sure if it would seal those shoes for you, something I've been wondering myself!
