 Parker Levi mold
-various paint/nail polish

Assemble your Materials
A couple of hints here...when beading, pour your beads on the back of foam, doesn't roll and is a WHOLE lot easier to pick up.

Use those wonderful 'extra hands' to hold for decoration, and get a SPINI MINI to raise height, be able to turn and pin into the cork top.  Contact BRUCE for more info ($25 plus $5 ship).

Step 1. Paint outline of shoe with dk rose acrylic paint, let dry.  Then go over with two light coats of pewter nail polish (we used a cheap brand from Walgreens called 876 Fusion by 60 Seconds).  Let Dry. 

Cover with two light coats of cheap clear nail polish to protect.

When beading, use beading stick or sharp cuticle stick to pick up beads.

Step 2.  Decorate shoe as desired.  We ran a line of pearls along edge of paint, and then did a no hole pearl in middle, surrounded by cross of silver beads on either side of pearl.

**HINT when beading, for EACH bead, put a drop of glue and then PRESS the bead into glue for secure hold.  When dry coat lightly with clear polish.

Step 3.  Add a bead strap across ankle. Step 4.  Add another strip from back to make triangles on each side.
