How-To: Glam Up Your Shoes
Can’t find the perfect pair of shoes in your closet? Instead of shopping, get creative. Take a less-than-perfect pair and transform them into the ultimate gleaming metallic accessory.
I used a Krylon Copper Leafing Pen to cover basic black heels in a shimmering layer of paint. Since it’s a pen and not a brush, no time is lost taping the inside or even cleaning up. Instant gratification! And if you dance all night long and scuff your copper heels, just touch them up with another pass of the leafing pen before the next soiree!
