I'm thinking of trying this stuff on my clogs if I ever make them.

Puff Paint/Liquid Applique works very well. It generally can be found in stores with the rubber stamp supplies. I like it as I can draw my own designs on the bottoms of the slippers in matching or contrasting colors. Just paint it on, let dry and puff it up with a hair dryer.

I've used the paint kind of thing, also. Works wonderfully and makes them even more persoanlized. (And cheaper!)
