I mentioned before, but I worked at a clothing boutique in college and was incredibly stylish thanks to that. I still have a pair of black suede booties that I can't stand to part with but the suede was rubbed off in places. So, I decided to DIY them.
I used black glitter
(Marth Stewart's is my favorite), Martha Stewart's Decoupage
in gloss finish, an old tupper container, a sponge brush, and an old box to contain the glitter.
I mixed the glitter and the decoupage in the tupperware container. I used equal parts and mixed until it was at a spreadable consistency. I didn't want it goopy.
Then I painted the shoe with the decoupage/glitter mix. I then sprinkled the black glitter all over the shoe. I let them dry an hour and then I touched up the areas that needed a little more glitter.
The last thing I did, I sprayed clear acrylic spray paint all over the shoes to keep the glitter from falling off every time I set them down.
What do you think? How'd they turn out?
