pretty!  You did an awesome job!  Did you spray it with a clear coat of anything to help protect it from getting the paint scratched?

thank you all so much!!

well, I'm a tattoo artist, so I put the art that I would like to do but rarely, if ever, get the opportunity on my own creations Smiley
Wow! How long did it take you? Thats gorgeous!

I usually paint in batches, and it takes about 3 days in process to get all my items finished. I'd say a few hours total?

I use acrylics, they hold up really well and the color stays bright.

Hope you don't mind, but I found a burgandy train case just like yours at the thrift store today (for $3!) and I am gonna paint mine, using yours as inspiration! Not sure what I am gonna use it for, I may turn it into my camera case!

Yours is gorgeous BTW! I'd let you tattoo old school on me any day! LOL!

I've lusted over this train case for months only to find out yesterday (Christmas Day) that my sister had purchased it for herself! WHAT?! 

But she also commissioned Lauren to make ME a custom train case!!!! I LOVE IT!  It's green with "No Love Lost" painted on the top and sparrows and hearts and it's just fabulous!   Grin
