Thanks, Diana! Like many of our creative projects, they started with a pretty good idea, then something much bigger -- the less-collaged toe, the removal of the laces, the addition of tassels and brass bells -- happened as we went along.

Actually, these shoes AREN'T just for show, they wear really well!

These shoes look really good. Like this style shoe. They remind me of the way I used to draw shoes on women when I was little. Nevertheless, I'd just say they're ok, but only for the show.

Hi! What are you planning to glue to the shoes? Also, it depends what the shoes are made of. For example, if you're gluing fabric to leather, you'd use FabriTac. If you're gluing fabric to manmade leather, you'd use The Ultimate. Most trim and lightweight embellishments are made of fabric, so that should simplify things. You can also go look at "Attaching Embellishments and Trim" on my how-to page,

Have a great party!

My daughter wants to have an art shoe party - she is turning 10. Any suggestions on the best all around shoe glue for altered art shoes - remembering I am working with children?

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
