Did you like my long title? Alright. As part of my etsy team, Blogging Business Artisans, I'm challenged to create a project on theme each month. This month's theme was "under the sea." I channeled my inner Ariel and made some green glitter shoes. I might not have a flipper, but I can have green shoes, right?
I started with a pair of black shoes I've had for several years. They are getting nice and worn away in the front. Aren't I so stylish?
I then used Mod Podge and several different green glitters to cover the shoes. I started by Mod Podging in patches and dumping on green glitter. I tried to use my lighter glitter towards the front and my darker glitter in back.
I also added on some glitter paint I had to give it an extra dimension of glitterocity (the technical term for it).
I kept adding glitter until everything was covered and then I sealed it with another layer of Mod Podge.
The overall effect is a splotchy-ombre effect. What did I learn while making this project? That I missed my calling as a foot model.
