Step 3: STARS

Now it's time for the best part, stars! I used a hard bristled paintbrush like shown but you can also use a toothbrush or anything like that. I put white paint on the brush and used my finger to flick stars onto the shoe repeatedly, covering all parts. Try to mimick a galaxy by making clusters of stars and different sizes. I also did another round of stars after the white dried, with the white glitter glue. It's a little more transparent so I made sure to do the plain white first for vibrancy. It adds a nice sparkle though in person. Just have fun with this step!

These are great! I wanted to get some shoes like this, but if I can make them, it will save tones of money, and I can do exactly what I want! I'm going to add a TARDIS on mine..... ;)
