I made this easy glittery leather cuff using Citra Solv and some glitter spray paint. I’ve done a few other leather cuff tutorials and this one is my favorite so far!
One of my favorite sayings is: there’s only one of me in all time…..so I created a repeat graphic and printed it out using my laser printer. I buy my blank leather cuffs from Dharma Trading.
You can download my template below….and it’s already reversed for transferring!
I used Citra Solv to do the transfer (click here to check out my other Citra Solv tutorials for the full process):
This is really important: the image must be printed on a copy machine or laser printer because the transfer only works with dry toner (i.e. not inkjet ink). I’ve found that certain copy machines and laser printers work better than others. I have a Brother HL-5370DW laser printer and the Brother toner cartridges I use work perfectly. Make sure to test out a couple copy machines and laser printers before you make a ton of copies and do your final transfer. Home laser printers and older copy machines seem to work better than brand new ones.
The leather cuff with the transferred image…as the Citra Solv is evaporating:
I think the leather cuff looked super cool at this point and I could have stopped here but my glitter spray paint was calling out to me:
I like the look of this one….it would work for any unisex design:
Ohhh….to the good glittery part…my Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint! I lightly sprayed a coating of glitter on the leather cuff:
Once the paint was dry, I wiped away any excess glitter. An easy accessory for you or for a gift! So easy and inexpensive to make they could be great party favors or stocking stuffers!
