I did this to one of my high heels for my wedding. I used Martha Stewart glitter paint and I used close to 2oz. I did quite a few coats since I wanted optimal coverage.

I used modpodge, and I would say for 2 shoes, you’ll definitely need more than 1.8 oz. I had to do 2 coats of glitter for optimal coverage. Although I did find that it was also easier to get more coverage when I mixed different sized glitters, so you could definitely do the 1.8oz and 3.5 oz togther.

@Shlieka:  Did your glitter flake off?  I am debating between doing mod podge and glitter or getting the glitter paint.  The glitter paint seems like it would shed less, but idk!

I experimented around, and I found that what I liked best was mod podge base, glitter, spray with mod podge high gloss, second coat of glitter. It gave me more of a 3D sparkly effect, and the spray helped seal the first coat of glitter in, so even if the second coat were to flake a little (which inevitably it will, I have store bought glitter shoes that also flake) it would still be sparkly underneath. I would definitely also tape off the parts you’re not glittering really well because it can be hard to get the glitter out of all the little nooks and crannies otherwise. Learned this the hard way XP

@allyfally:  Yes, I used glitter paint and it worked perfectly. You can rub your hand over it and next to nothing will come off.
