DIY: painted shoe soles tutorial

As I mentioned before my neon soled shoe DIY was similar to my red soled Louboutins project

What I used:
Forever 21 peep-toe lace-ups (actually, I also updated the original laces with a ribbon from Michael's)
Neon Yellow acrylic craft paint by Plaid from Walmart (you can add a little bit of bright green to this mix)
Mod-Podge (I used Hard Coat finish)
medium or large flat crafter's brush

I painted the soles in 3 layers of neon paint (letting it dry in between).  Then, sealed the deal with a coat of Mod-Podge.  That's it!  Have fun!

 2-3 layers of acrylic paint

a layer of Mod-Podge (Mod-Podge will dry clear)

And in case you're wondering how my red soled Louboutins are holding up, here is a current picture (granted, as a busy Soccer Mom I don't wear them too often of course, plus I have to drive everywhere):

I was so excited when I got my first International order on my little Etsy shop (Georgia Blue Boutique).  This adorable faux snake skin purse was shipped all the way to Australia this week!
