  • redesigning shoes suitable glue for leather and peacock feathers ?

    hi, i have this old black leather shoes and i was thinking of redesigning them by attaching peacock feather all over. the thing is i don't know what kind of glue i should use to attach them together. i was thinking of gluing the feather onto a strip of felt and then gluing the felt to the leather shoes. i want glue that form very strong bond and turn clear when dry and very malleable so the feathers will stay on longer. please help? could i use fabric glue or hot glue for this?

    Hey,

    The gluing depends whether you want to decoupage it (collage it on and have it watertight) or have them displayed in all their beauty. Using a hot glue gun works for feathers to leather. play how the feathers are to look and layer before gluing!

    If you go with decoupage here is a link as I havent tried my hand at feathers just yet!
