You do not need to seal the suede. You're totally right about the soft finish! It wouldn't be good!


Awesome! Do I need to apply a sealer on my suede heels after I paint them? Or would that take away from the suede "soft" feel?

Leilani, It's such an improvement isn't it? The faux embroidery is a very neat, yet simple, technique. The results are fab!

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!"
