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
