The Tulip "Slick" that I used for traction on the bottom of my Mukluks is NOT working out. Thanks to Kathy L., who wisely inquired as to if the Slick would be felt through the slipper because it is hard...... YES! You can feel it and it's not terribly comfy. Although it does have somewhat of a massaging property. Might be ok for adults but kids might not like it do much. Also, because the slipper is knitted in garter stick on the bottom, and therefore very bumpy, some of the dots gave fallen off! Ugh - kind of a disaster all around.
So, I'm off to Jo-Ann's/Michael's to get the kind of paint that dries sort of dull and puffy rather than hard and shiny. I had heard that it didn't last as long, but that's ok--- it can always be re-applied right? I'm trying to avoid using the fabric that has the non- slip tread built into it. While it is a great option, I'm terribly impatient and it would take me a long time to do since you have to hand sew it into place.
I'm not giving up on the Tulip "Slick" though--- I'm going to use it on Paul's felted slippers to see how it works. Since they are felted the bottoms are thicker and more dense so he shouldn't feel it.
Ok, so that's the update -a review of the other paint will be coming.
