We use either Lumiere or Neopaque paints, both of which are available in our online store: http://store.sassyfeet.com -- and we send how-to instructions with each order!

What kind of paints do you use these are very pretty!

Neopaque! Then add Pearl White back in for the shine! OF COURSE! It's genius.

Margot

Thanks for the orange "recipe"! And no need to thank us for showing off your shoes and travel bag -- they deserved it!!

Oh my goodness!!! I am at a loss for words. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for this article and with an Award, WOW! Thank you both so much!!!
As for the Orange color, I mixed Neoopaque Red and Neoopaque Yellow then added Lumiere Pearle White.(More Yellow than red) I unfortunately did not measure the amounts of each so it will be a trial and error for me to find a similar orange. I will definitely measure next time.
Thank you both again, you have made my day!!!

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!"
