Spruce up an old pair of high heels by customizing them! You can put whatever design you want!  I tool this old pair to the Techshop in Menlo Park and did just that!  All you need is basic CorelDraw knowledge and the ability to use the lasers at the Techshop.

Step 1: Getting set up.

So after I chose what images I wanted to put on my high heels I measured the toe area and heel area of my high heels.  I then adjusted the images I put into CorelDraw so that they would fit in these areas.

After all my file work was done I set up my heels in the laser.  I simply put them onto the bed of the laser and propped them up to be more level with some bolts I found in the laser room.

Then I focused the laser by adjusting the bed up until the laser focus touched my heels where I thought the best imaging would come out.  The heels have a lot of contour so I had to focus on the area where I thought the least distortion would occur from the laser.
That is awesome! I love the Nightmare Before Christmas images :D
Thanks so much!!!
