My nana is 92, and today I am taking her to a funeral (one of her favorite cousins passed away at 94 this week). Nana has a pair of silver shoes that she considers to be the comfiest ever. But she needs black comfy shoes to wear to the services. Last night while visiting her after Thanksgiving dinner, she asked me if I could paint her beloved metallic slip-ons when I got home so she could wear them in the morning.
"Of course!" I replied. I love it when family members ask me for crafty assistance!
These shoes are soft metallic vinyl. In case you are wondering, shoe polish is stinky. Spray paint rubs/flakes off, but Tulip® Soft Fabric Paint™ ? This is one of the reasons it was invented!
My suggestion - especially with the holiday season here - is to buy a multi-pack so you have little pots of different colors. They'll come in handy to touch-up belts, handbags, furniture, shoes, clothing and more.
