I really love to revamp old vintage purses (see Thrift Store Purse Revamp swap 1 & 2).
 Here's my latest:


Thanks for looking! Cheesy

Here's another I made for the ongoing wish swap 7. (My partner received it on Saturday, so I'm not ruining the suprise. Cheesy)



And the wallet I sent PinkMafia a while back:


sorry about the glare!

I posted the pic of your purse after you PM'd me that you got it. I hate spoilers. Cheesy

I'm using paint pens, I think they are Elmer's brand. The pearlescent type work the best and are the most opaque. Some of the colors need multiple coats. They don't seem to need a sealer, but I don't use them as everyday bags.
The first bag is made of fabric and needed more coats, the second was a vinyl bag and that didn't soak up the paint as much so it needed less. The third is leather, and that needed a lot of layers.

It takes a bit as you want to make sure each layer is fully dry and set before you add the next coat.

Thanks for all the kind words! Cheesy

Here's a couple more pics of the finished pirate bag and a new one:



The camera washed out the colors a bit, sorry! I've gotta finally learn how to use my digi one of these days.

The "Fly lightly" bag was inspired by a necklace I saw from "Classic Harware" on SilverCrow's website. SilverCrow sells a lot of shrine supplies, but the necklace was out of stock, so I had to paint the image on the purse. I will be buying one as soon as they come in. Cheesy

I haven't gotten the hang of Etsy yet....I don't know if I price too high or what.

Maybe tool around over there and see if there are any similiar items?
(if there are, I'm sure they are no where as cool as yours!)
