Yes, I think you are right. Also, the Pearl Magenta has that pearly aspect which reflects the light, while a matte color might also add to the depth.

It wlooks like the first one had a little orange, too, which wouldwork well to give the colour a little depth.

And, if you want a rich, solid color on your soles, use a StazOn stamp pad re-inker (it's a little bottle) and brush it on with a cheap, throwaway brush. I changed some white hightop soles to black with one coat using that stuff!

Leanne

Very clever! And now I understand more of what you meant by stamping alcohol ink on the rubber sole--yes, looks great.

Margot

Me too! Imagine -- faded French blue, pale violet, dusky gold....

Erin Perry

I want a pair in every pastel shade!

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!"
