Okay, this is the 2nd shoe attempt. Loved every second of this one! I found that if I used a small bag of powdered sugar(had a bit left over from kneading the MMF)on the front of the shoe, it was much smoother. I used kelly green for the color and brushed on super pearl LD for the shine. I could still use a bit more work on my technique. But I am happy with the result. Named it "Shoes by Edie" for my younger daughter's nickname. Thanks for looking!
