Dead Pointe Shoe Donations for Art

Hello! I am wondering if anyone would be willing to donate multiple pairs of dead, old pointe shoes for artistic purposes only, not for dancing in:) They would be used as canvases for paintings and as sculptures that would be placed in local auctions. I would pay for the shipping and if you would like I can send you photos of the completed work. This is a fairly new account so I won't be able to message you, but reply and I will leave my email so we can work out the details then. Thank you all so, so much!!!! :)

I'm not sure if you've found enough already, but I happen to work at a dance store and we were going through stock and found old pointe shoes that are too old to be sold (the glue deteriorates after awhile and can't fully support a dancer), if you'd like I could see if they can be mailed out to you? They're an old model of shoe but they're all new shoes, if that makes a difference. The shoes are going to be thrown out anyway, so if you need them let me know asap.
