thanks everyone!

once i peeled off the stuff i was surprised at how much i liked the rough pink and bronze look. . .but in person they really did look a little pathetic.  and i still wanted my metallic shoes.

SO, now that i've worn them out and rubbed a bit of the gold off i think i will buff them down with a cloth and re-apply the paint pen, maybe in a different color, then buff it down again and seal it with spray stuff. 

will post an update when that happens.

thanks again!

PHOTOGRAPHY - It's what I do, and I'm pretty darn good.

You can also try a satin-finish varnish (sold in the acrylics aisle of the craft store) to seal them. And since so many people liked the distressed look, why not go at them with some steel wool, and see what comes up?
