Ah! I love them both! But I am especially envious of the swallow. I have been a bit obsessed with swallows lately, maybe from reading the ENTIRE tattoo thread and seeing all the pretty ones! As for sealer...that's a tricky one. I used to paint my leather jackets (years ago) and the vinyl ones always seemed to flake off. I feel like nail polish would chip. Maybe test it on an inconspicuous area first? Those beauties must be preserved forever!!

Gosh!  Thank you, thank you!  The swallow was pretty easy.  I was going to do an owl, but kept messing up! 

Krylon is a spraypaint so I think I am going to skip on that.  I think I will test nail polish, because I used to paint everything with it, it is small, cheap (I don't need much, just enough to cover the artwork), and I sealed a tiny oil painting when I was in middle school and I do remember it not flaking up.  I'm still going to test because the vinyl is a more flexible surface, but I think it will work fairly well!  I'll be sure to report back on how it went so that, in the future, other crafters will know if it will suit their product or not!

these are so so so so so pretty! i painted some old bags the other day with acrylic paint and as a sealent i just used mod podge the glossy kind it seamed to work pretty good so you could maybe try that.

I've used mod podge on some projects and it gets really sticky and kind of gross sometimes.  Especially with decoupage.  The nail polish seemed to work well and they both sold at a craft show!

That is some HIGH QUALITY crafting! Great job. Keep us updated on the sealant search, i'm really curious. I'm sure something heavy duty in a can stuff would work, but it might leech onto the non-painted surfaces of the purses...

I was going to try - no joke - mod podge, but it usually ends up sticky on purses and that isn't something I want.  I think I am going to go with acrylic paint sealer (like one would use for finished paintings on canvas).  I feel like that would probably yeild the best result.

I don't like modpodge on pleather and vinyl. I used it to seal a bag and it just peels off. A total bummer.  Sad

As you sew, so shall you rip. Don't fear the ripper.

I love both of them! Congrats on selling them. I have also fallen for the swallows look lately. Great job.
