Step 5: Ruin Everything (Optional)

Just Kidding! This is the mod podge step. Add a layer of the stuff all over the shoe, making sure to get it in all the thread crevices and the outlines. I always do this with a sponge brush. It helps to push it down with your finger but it can get messy. Don't be alarmed when it looks like the first picture! It might look like you're ruining all of your hard work but I promise it will not mess with any of the paint and it dries completely clear! Make sure you finish with a waterproof spray because mod podge is water based and if water hits your shoes, they will actually be ruined.
<p>Thats so cool! This is a great idea for old,ugly,converse!</p>
<p>I believe you can get outdoor mod podge which is waterproof.</p>
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..... ;)
Same! i wanted doctor who shoes and i am going to write TARDIS in Gallifreyan on it! ^_^
