The thing with my crafting is that I have to watch either Supernatural or Merlin or Being Human when I do it. No matter what.

I lent out my Merlin disk set and I figured that 8 seasons of Supernatural could keep me busy since I had already watched the poop out of Being Human. I popped in the second disk of season one while crafting. I went to work. Came back and the disk set disappeared. We TORE the house apart searching for it. I think someone came into my apartment. Took disks 4-10 to just screw with my mind. Probably Dane Cook. Damnnit! All crafting is off until my disk is returned. XD

I know exactly what I want to make but apparently my sewing machine disagrees with me

I would tape off the metal parts and use Krylon Paint + Primer. Only that spray paint would I recommend. That is what I would do

You know you are a craftster when the workers at the hobby store get of your way when you enter, avoid your tough questions and say "Oh no! She's got a list!"

I am an avid spray painter. I spray paint EVERYTHING! I only do this because I have found THE best spray paint.

I only use Krylon Paint+Primer. Its the one with the twisty cap. It works on everything. I had enormous suitcase that was a bright yucky orange and lime green. I bought three cans thinking that I would need to go back for more. With one can I spray painted the entire huge suitcase, my surround sound speakers and three embroidery hoops.

I would only recommend that spray paint. It would cover over your yellow no problem.

I don't usually sand unless it is a high gloss orginally underneath. I never sand between coats. High gloss really doesn't hold paint well. I REALLY hate sanding so what I do is use this product called Klean-Strip Degloss and Sander. It costs $7 and goes really far. It goes on like Modge Podge. That is out of sheer laziness though.

If I get something in it when I am painting. I use a small foam brush to pull it out. I brush the paint as even as I can (sometimes it comes off) and then spray over it.

Today I found the solution to all painting problems!

Krylon Paint + Primer. It is affordable and with another suitcase that i was just gifted it covered in easily in one quick coat. This suitcase was HUGE! It covered it in what would normally take three coats and six cans.

Those came out great!  So, you say the spray paint was the worst idea ever--how did you end up painting them? Did you use fabric for the part with the pretty blue and yellow design?

Okay Ill write down my whole process and what worked and didn't. The fabric is from Hobby Lobby. I got it on sale with a coupon.

1. I painted with white exterior paint - Flaked off and peeled
2. Cheap sspray paint over top the peeling paint - could see the spots that wasn't painted
3. Sanded down the paint really well
4. Expensive PLASTIC spray paint in very very thin coats waited until it was dry - Then it worked
5. Modpodged the fabric on the top and pushed it with a butterknife into the cracks.

The end.

Any other questions?
