I recently purchased this backpack online and was dissapointed to see how shinny it actually was when I received it.
That being said, it is too late to return the bag, so I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions to make the bag less shinny?
I should add though, that it's more the way that the bag reflects the light that makes it look so shinny, rather than the material itself.
The material seems to be some coated fabric/PVC... (which is lightly embossed, by the way)
Attached are pictures of the bag. Two are stock photos from the website, the others are pictures I took myself.
Any tips to give the bag a matte finish, or make it reflect the light less are welcomed. Thank a lot.

My daughter uses this stuff to repaint shiny dolls, it has a nice flat finish. I can't make any guarantees, of course http://www.amazon.com/Gundam-Paint-Hobby-Super-Clear/dp/B000W30PIW
