I did the glitter mixed in, and it stays just fine. I did like 5 or 6 really thin coats, and it came out really even and covered nicely.

They should be just fine though! I did my toasting flutes and cake server set the same way actually!

You can clear coat them after too. As long as the surface was rough and doest flex constantly you should be good that’s how I did mine. It took mine 7 coats but I paint thin.

Hey there, date twin!

I tried to do some this morning before work (stupid, I know).  It came out really clumpy and weird.  I’m going to try the other shoe tonight when I get home, and hope for better results.  Cool

My  first pair of DIY glitter shoes went horrible wrong. I did the glitter/mod podge mix,  four layers and it ended up cracking and chipping off. I ended up buying a new pair of shoes and did the mod podge then applied the glitter. I haven’t had any problem with this.
