No leather is safe in my house now that I have a full set of Angelus leather paints!
I’ve always loved the look of the custom Louis Vuitton monograms…a pricy luxury, right?
I found a $5 leather purse at the thrift store and made Boo her own Louis Vuitton-inspired purse….a “Boo-tton” (thanks for naming it Melissa!). I have a VERY shaky and unsteady hand so if I was able to paint this….anyone can!
Step 1: Make sure the purse is clean and free of oils:
Step 4: Start painting! You will need small tiny detail brushes. For my smallest brush I cut off half of the bristles (see the photo of this brush in my painted headband tutorial).
Step 6: Use adhesive contact paper or painters tape to block off any stripes or additional blocks you want to paint:
Paint just a very thin layer to use as your guide….paint will seep under the tape just a bit but you will be able to see your lines to work with and touch up the edges as you go. You can keep a clean damp paintbrush nearby to quickly clean up any mistakes.
It’s going to be in the mid 90′s here today! Boo is testing out our new Lil Blue Boo nautical shorts and a tunic we are offering soon for summer:
