Clog question

I am trying to figure out how to treat the soles of the clogs so that they are not so slippery. I noticed that Chris has a plug for Plasti Dip in his blog. What are other guys doing to unslick their soles?

my theory is this...

I bought some rug backing from Michaels, but I am still working out the best way to apply it.

I am thinking about making templates for a sole pattern using 1/8" matt board. In theory, after using a low tack adhesive on the matt, they can be stuck to the sole, the cutouts filled with rug backing and leveled off with a straight edge.

When the matt is removed, the sole pattern will (should) remain.

I suspect that this is how the gloves with decorative gripper palms are made.

Plan to try it out tomorrow - wish me luck! 

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence

Justin -- very interesting idea! Please let us know how it works out.
