White pointe shoes?

Recommended Posts

On the back of the black pointe shoe thread, does anyone have any tips for turning pointe shoes white? The lady in our local shop suggested plimsoll white net - does this work?

 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Thank you for replying.

 

I've had a go with the whitener but it doesn't seem to be doing more than mattifying them the way calamine does 🤔  I'm tempted by paint, although my art student DS is saying  'don't do it, mum!'

From what I remember about plimsoll whitener, I can't imagine it being too helpful, but I'm afraid I don't know what else to suggest.  Don't normal fabric dyes work on pointe shoes?

I know you can turn pointe shoes tan using either a liquid or a powder foundation. Could you buy white foundation from a stage makeup store (used for turning people into ghosts etc) and pancake with that?
