I took some ugly Payless flats, made a cocktail of Mod Podge, fine pink glitter, and chunky red glitter (I mixed these three ingredients together in a washed out Thai food take-out container). I coated the ugly shoes in the Mod Podge glitter mishy-mosh. The shoes dried. Then my cat peed in them. Then I submerged the flats in a bucket of boiling water and lots of clothing detergent. I left them in there for a day. The pee smell left but the glitter stayed. I walked through a repulsive rainstorm and a totally flooded, filthy subway station and the glitter STILL stayed.
I heard that some people had issues when they coated the shoes in Mod Podge and then poured glitter on top. I heard that those people dealt with the glitter peeling off in chunks. I haven’t had that problem. The glitter remained after angry cat pee, boiling water, harsh detergent, and NYC rainstorms. I recommend my strategy. Plus, creating a mushy, sparkly goo that consists of glue and two kinds of glitter is really fun. Not to be missed.
