AEDM Day 7: Sparkly

November 7, 2011

I love Stumble Upon. I can push that button for hours. It is both the cure and the cause for insomnia for me. Last night I was Stumbling and I found a tutorial on how to make plain flats all glittery. So, I decided to make that my project for today. I know it’s not technically art, but it’s at least creative!

Supplies: Mod Podge type glue (I used Collage Pauge), glitter, masking tape, a foam brush, and a pair of flats (any color).

Here are the shoes I used. Nine dollars at Wal-Mart. I wear flats a lot, but I always make sure to find interesting looking ones. These are too plain for me, but they won’t be when I’m done.

I used the tape to mask the heels and to secure the bow out of the way.

The tutorial said to mix the glitter and glue together then paint it on, layer after layer. I tried that, but it seemed too slow. So, for the second coat, I spread a thick layer of glue on, then sprinkled the glitter on, then added another layer of glue.

The shoes will look all funky, but the glue dries clear. Mine are still drying, so I guess the big unveil will have to be tomorrow. I can’t wait!
