The main reason you "cannot glitter glossy shoes" is the issue of glue. The Susie Homemaker glues are just not going to cut it. You need something with muscle, and that something is 3M Super 77. This is the Cadillac of spray glues, and it is just what you want to buy to do this project. You can purchase it at our website or at most hardware stores and some craft stores. Do not buy any other brand or you will be so sorry with the results.
Here we go!
2. 3M Super 77
3. Painters Tape
4. Glitter (craft or poly). If you plan to wear these a lot then I would go with poly.
5. Sealer: Craft Glitter (Mod Podge) Polyester Glitter (Krylon Crystal Clear or Mod Podge)
Hope you will give it a try!
