I don't like gloomy weather, and had an umbrella that had some ugly text on 2 of the panels, so I gave the whole thing a paint job to give it some cheer Smiley

You can see some of the text behind the paint above (someone gave it to my mum for free, hence the ad text)

the whole thing:

it's just good ol' acrylic paint Smiley it's held up pretty well so far (i've used it about 4 or 5 times over the last 2 weeks)

Beautiful! I bet paint parkers would work pretty good for this as well. Seriously though, it's awesome. Makes me think of octopus suction cups for some reason.l

That's such a cute idea Smiley
i would do this too if i had any artistic talent at all..
and all my umbrellas invariably break, so i gave up on them..
but this is seriously cute, and you can barely see tehe ad text in the first photo Smiley
and not at all in the second..
now all you need is a matching raincoat and wellies ^.^

You did a great job, I never use an umbrella but I might have to make one like yours

I have very limited internet access so if you don't hear from me don't worry I'll be around soon
