  • How to embellish a pair of bejewelled shoes. Long Live Mc Queen - Step 1

    Spray paint the bases and heels of your shoes gold, and also most of your tiger eye stones. I suggest you do this on your newspaper to avoid damaging any surfaces. Leave to dry.

    After your gold paint has dried, spray on your clear lacquer. This might well take a day to dry.
