Project Instructions

Step 1  Tear painter’s tape into jagged strips and press onto surface of shoes, overlapping as needed to create a zebra-striped pattern on each shoe. Press tape edges well to prevent glue seepage and make sure to wrap strips around to undersides of shoes.

Step 2  Use straight edges of tape to mask off heel and sole areas of shoes.

Step 3  Squeeze a puddle of Fashion Glitter® Bond onto paper plate. Use the included wedge sponge to apply a generous layer to the open areas in between tape strips.

Step 4  Pour Royal Blue glitter over the Fashion Glitter® Bond on shoes. Shake off excess glitter onto scratch paper and return to container for reuse.

Step 5  Remove tape, using Fashion Art tweezers if needed. Add additional glitter to any areas where the Fashion Glitter® Bond may have seeped underneath tape. Let dry.

Step 6 (Optional)  Seal glittered portion of shoes with sealer. Let dry. 


Press tape down completely to ensure a clean edge and prevent glue seepage.
