    How to do it
    1
    Draw a sketch of your shoe sculpture first. Is it an animal, a person or perhaps a particular person? What do the nose, ears, etc. look like?
    2
    Draw ears, points and other large parts onto thick card and attach these onto the shoe with a glue gun or masking tape. Remember to add approx. 1 cm for the glue fold!
    3
    You may make the nose from an egg box dimple and attach it with a glue gun or masking tape.
    4
    Cover the shoe with masking tape if it, for example, has a synthetic or smooth surface that is not easy to paint. If the shoe has a textured surface, you won't need to cover it with masking tape.
    5
    Prime the entire shoe with Super Primer and allow to dry.
    6
    Paint the toe area with an opaque acrylic paint in your chosen colours and leave to dry.
    7
    Attach polystyrene, eyes, hair and eyebrows (from wool), teeth, heavy glasses etc. from foam rubber using a glue gun.
    8
    Draw details with an opaque marker.
    9
    Make fine freckles or dots with a brush handle dipped in paint.
    10
    Paint eye colour, pupils and eye reflexes on the eyes - see the picture! It adds a lot of life to the sculpture!!!
