Add more glitter to the glue, but make sure it’s mixed in well, and not clumpy. If it’s clumpy in the glue, it will be clumpy on the shoe. Try to make the coats as even as possible. Eventually, when you can’t see the sole, it will all blend in.

I don’t think you can really determine the quality of the heel until it’s complete.

@KelannaDC:  I agree the smell is terrible! Good luck…..trust me I wanted to throw in the towel soooo many times on this project so just stick with it and you’ll be on cloud  9 with the final results!

We did the bottom of mine. We used the sponge brush too, but did a thin layer to begin with then did another layer after it dried to get the full color. 🙂

I looked up some stressing tutorials as well.  I thinkthis advice might help you:

As far as placing the rhinestones go, there really was no rhyme or reason to it.  I would put a few of the 5mm ones on kind of scattered-like, and then just fill  in the gaps with the smaller-sized stones. One tip I will add to make your shoes  look better: use less glue than you think you need to, and let the glue dry for  a few seconds before you try to stick it on the shoe. The glue gets nice and  tacky after a few seconds and will stick much easier if you wait just a bit! :)  Using less glue also keeps it from gushing out from underneath the rhinestone  too much.

@JJsGirl_09:  WOW those look good… I am confused though as to why the glitter is on the bottom? Wont that get everywhere and just come off when you walk? lol sometimes I’m a little slow when it comes to fashion.
