Two pair of shoes were selected for a quick make-over and came out the better for it.
An old pair of navy suede sandals with a broken buckle and shabby surface got a once over with dark blue glitter glue. The kind that comes in a squeeze tube for kids. It evened out the tone and left a subtle glitter look when they catch the light. And I reattached the buckle with some strong glue.
Next up for treatment was a boring old pair of neutral colored suede mary jane type flats. They had a couple small scuff marks that I scrubbed out with an old toothbrush. The ones that didn't come out got covered by mixing some pastel chalks until I matched the shoe color and rubbed it in with my fingers. Voila. To spruce it up more, I painted the side of the soles (which were the same neutral color) a bright neon orange with some acrylic paint I had. Very cool.
It was so much fun, I went back to the closet and found two more pairs to play with later...
