Powertex Shoe Stampunk

I'm so busy at the moment with workshops and I also have an event upcoming so I have had several projects on the go at once, however, I thought you may like to see this one.


It started it's journey as a battered old shoe that was destined for the rubbish bin, My daughter thought I was crazy when I rescued it.
Mind you it took 3 weeks before I dared to put my hand inside it, so a clean up before I started to create with it.

I wanted it to be a statement piece and I think I've managed that.
It is sitting on a wooden plaque covered in material that was soaked in Powertex medium then dry brushed with rich gold pigments.

For the shoe I created the toe piece then wrapped the shoe in material worked with Black Powertex and then started the decoration using doilies and some steampunk embellishments.

As an ornament the shoe could hold make up brushes or a small bottle of wine but to be honest I would be tempted not to add a thing as I love it as it is.
