Fixing up old stuff to make it new again really gets my rocks off, here's some more of my recently healed patients from the sad old bag hospital:

rose mirror compact- this was an awesome find & I was especially glad to bring this back to life


green razorblade pouch


pretty swallow handbag


Mi Vida Loca sugar skull goodness (oh how I love making script, mmmmm...)




this one was fun, and the purse was to die for. I would keep it but I never wear anything brown



sah-weeeeet vintage poker set, yet another thing I would love to keep if it wouldn't get shoved away in a drawer, me & the b/f are far too busy to play card games  Sad

here's the inside (oh it's neat), does anyone know what game uses dice with face cards on?


next time I'll take before pics, I promise!! I already got a new batch of patients & I've got some befores, but I need to start taking pics before I clean & repair them too

thanks so much for looking!

Those are awesome! I love the "Mi Vida Loca" purse and I normally don't like that sort of thing Smiley What kind of paint did you use if you don't mind me asking? Will it wear well?

This stuff is great! I just started painting on leather, and I'd be so happy if you could tell me of a good sealant to keep the paint from chipping/wearing off.

I love the rose compact!

Your dice are poker dice; there are some rules here.

thanks so much everyone!!
I use acrylic paint & seal it with triple-thick clear glaze. Sometimes I hit it with a coat of matte medium first to make the sealant adhere better.

I painted a pair of shoes with this process about a year ago & I figure if shoes can take a licking & keep on ticking then it would work with just about anything.

p.s. thanks for the poker dice link!

These items are amazing!!  I have no talent when it comes to painting, drawing, or even writing legibly.

The gun purse makes me think of a "Pistol packing Mamma"!!!!!!!!!

I would've totally guessed that you used One Shot. But since you didn't, I have to ask, what kind of brush did you use for your lines? They're so even. Did you use a brush with longer bristles so you don't have to dip into your paint as often?
