They look fabulous! You did such a great job. Can I ask some questions? How did you apply the dye? Was it a dye bath or just paint/ spray on? Also what kind of dye is it ( this will depend what type of fibre the fabric is made from)? if you’re concerned about the dye running I’m sure we could find a way to set the dye so that this wont be an issue.

wow! I am wondering if there is a way to treat them so the colour won’t run? I know with some things you can apply heat and  it will “set” dye. I don’t know about shoes though and I would be wary of trying it. But maybe get a small swatch of satin and use some left over dye to check? You could use a hair dryer or something if it’s effective. I am hoping to dye some shoes yellow…. this is a HUGE help because I didnt know how I was going to tackle it!!

They look GREAT! I’m still looking for purple shoes- maybe I will take on a DIY project if I can’t find a purple pair that I love.

RE: protecting the color from running and potentially getting on the dress…

 

Definitely use Scotch Guard on those shoes whenever they’re fully dry. Obviously you have to be very sure that they are dyed to the perfect color. It’s not a 100% preventative, but I doubt you’ll be sloshing through a marsh or anything with those shoes on!
