Leather iPhone Cover
Sponge-painted with a cosmetic sponge and several colors of Lumiere. If you search for “cosmetic sponge” on our blog, you’ll find lots of other examples of this cool method of painting. Details and more photos on our blog at If It’s Leather, I’ll Paint It!
Manmade Leather Briefcase
Destiny created this hand-painted briefcase for Margot’s birthday awhile back. She walks you through the steps on our blog at Words, Beautiful Words.
Embossed Leather Journal
Applying paint on embossed leather – or actually animal skin, like snake or alligator – can give you fabulous results. Details and more photos on our blog at A Painted and Embellished Journal.
Our motto is, If It’s Leather, We’ll Paint It! When Margot found this vintage leather couch at a garage sale, she grabbed it (not literally…). We used a couple of different sponge painting techniques and four colors of Lumiere. It’s been three years now and the colors are holding up just fine! Details and more photos on our blog at You Painted Your What?
Our Lumiere and Neopaque paints work beautifully on fabric! Here is a sweatshirt we did that combines sponged geometric shapes and stenciled birds in flight. Once dry, the paint is fully washable and softens up nicely after one or two passes through the laundry. Details and more photos on our blog at Doing a Paint-Stenciled Sweatshirt.
We are in love with zippers and zipper tape – as long as they’ve been given that custom touch. We used Lumiere to add dots, lines, triangles, scallops and other details (including sponging) to these zippers (we took them apart so we could use them as embellishments). Take a look at the photos below for some of the MANY ways you can use painted zippers and zipper tape. (Hint: You can glitter them, too!)
We talk about how to sponge-paint zippers on our blog at New Zipper-Ruffle Shoes for the Show.
