I’ve been spending a little time chatting away to like minded folk about the styles of ballet heels. I did the wander in the heel-less boots (HERE) and the conversation shifted to wedge shaped heels for ballet boots.
The above ballet heel was made by a person I do not know, but formed the inspiration for this pair. Not much of a fan of the wedge, however, I do like to try things out, so I made these over the last week.
So. The little movie.
I am fast becoming frustrated with the film I make of late. I can’t wait to get outdoors and show the white knee high boots
I’ve just completed and a few other pairs of heels that really do need a photographer
I won’t bother again with a tutorial for these things…it’s merely blocks of wood stuck together, whittled away, (Suzanzi-trick-style-strengthened), sanded and painted. The sole of the ballet boot has been removed to help with reducing bulk and the upper then glued and screwed to the wooden base. I’ve just added another 1.5cm onto the base so they will be more extreme a platform. :-)
Have fun and I’ll see you soon, with these things on a road test!!!!
