This is one pair that I've admired since it was released. Now, finding a pair in my size and color is no longer an easy task.
I started off my mission at Goodwill, where i picked up a pair of black platform sandals. They were $10.50, a bit expensive for Goodwill standards. My next stop was Michael's, where I picked up a can of gold spray paint and some wing charms. There were maybe four or five different types of gold, which made it a bit difficult to choose one out.
I then taped the soles of the shoes to prevent it from turning gold. I first took masking tape to put around the edges, and then taped some paper to fill in the rest.
For my spray paint, I close Design Master in Brilliant Gold 731.
Not exactly the color I wanted, but it's still gold, so I'll accept it. This spray is so much more fast drying than the kinds that I've used in the past, before it was illegal for minors to buy spray paint. The kind that I used to have would take hours and hours to dry. This one took only a few seconds. Crazy!
Finishing touch was the little wing charm. I spray painted these too, though they were originally gold, to match the color of the shoes.
And here is the result:
Success! While it's not perfect, I do like them quite a bit. And I've discovered the joy of spray painting during the process.
