Shoe Porn

I’ve been sniffing glue just a little too much in the last 48 hours and I think I may have inhaled a few too many rhinestones but I reckon it’s been worth it.

I’ve just finished these little baby Converse shoes. They were originally dirty dark pink children’s size 8 dull regular hi-tops. Now they’re a ‘Candyfloss Bling’ size 8 custom job. I painted the uppers in a hand-mixed fabric paint with glitter. Afterwards every rhinestone and bead has been applied one at a time; I think there’s almost 1000 of them in all. I’m still waiting for the glue to dry and then they’ll be finished with some beautiful white satin laces. I know all of this shoe porn will be lost on a little princess but I know mummy will appreciate every little detail. They’ll be great for that discerning young lady who wants to wow the grown-ups at a party or a wedding.

Once I’m done they’ll probably end up on my etsy shop or on ebay. I’m developing these as an alternative to making collages. It gives me time away from cutting and allows my brain space to consider other things whilst keeping my hands busy. I guess this is… hmmm yes… it’s a hobby.

if you’re awake you’ll notice these are a different shoe to the picture I shared on Thursday. Yes there’s more of this kind of thing on its way.
