No materials are off limits though I’ve heard it’s harder to strass on suede and that patent leather needs to be scuffed up with fine grained sand paper so the glue can stick.

As for colour, do whatever you want. It’s probably best if the shoes are close to the stones in colour but some combos (like dark blue stones and black shoes, red stones and black shoes, clear stones and gold shoes) can come out with a cool effect.

I did this not too long ago and created an online tutorial to help other brides with DIY strassing:

It features pictures, my step by step process, products I used and what it all cost me.

Hope this helps! 🙂
