We will call this the "before" picture.
The first thing I did was scratch up the surface of the shoes with some sand paper. I didn't spend too much time or effort into this, just enough the give the surface some texture. Then I took the shoe laces out.
After letting the glue dry, I added another very thin layer of glue mixture and immediately poured glitter all over the wet shoe. After the shoe was covered in glitter, I took the glue mixture and sponged it over the dry glitter to push it into the shoe's surface. (I did this on a sheet of paper to be able to pick up the unused glitter and pour it back into the jar.) In this step, you want to make sure you have covered every part of the shoe in glitter, without creating a lumpy texture on the shoe. You want the glitter to be as even as possible before it even starts drying.
I then took a glossy finish spray and sprayed the shoes twice, waiting 20 minutes in between each spray.
