Decorating pointe shoes?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about decorating my dead first pair of pointe shoes and putting them on display :thumbsup:. The problem is i'm not exactly the most talented at working with artsy things :sweating:. i was thinking about doing something like this:






Any other ideas? Oh, and does anyone know what type of dye works best?

Well, if you wish to keep the satin finish, you'll have to get a satin dye from a wedding store. If not, then any craft paint should do! I have used acrylics and glued rinestones on with Goop!!


Have fun!!!!!

Something that I've done is pencil on a design and then fill it in with fabric markers. I've done music notes, flowers, butterflies, and fish... my next plan is to do polka dots... and (If you're daring) you can dance in them, too...!
