the polyphonic spree are one of my favourite bands so i made this bag with them in mind. its based on a gig poster i saw with loads of red balloons. I followed the tutorial for the messenger bag above somewhere and painted the balloons on with red acrylic paint. i ironed over it in a hope to 'seal' it but it will prolly still run if it rains.any ideas what i can do so the paint doesnt run?

If its acrylic it shouldn't run...cause, if you think about it, it doesn't come off your clothes in the wash....when its spinning around with lots of soap and water. So why would it come off in the rain?

thats my 0.02 anyways.

Wow. I really like the balloons on that bag! Great job. How exactly did you go about ironing over the paint to seal it?

that is quite cute, i like how you put the balloons on the side and floating away to the left, very nice

Damn it feels good to be a gangster

i covered it in some spare fabric then ironed over it. it was my textiles teacher who suggested it might work....but i dont know if it actually works because she is a bit rubbish really and tends to get textiles things wrong. Ive had some issues with t-shirts with acrylic paint on that comes off after a few washes
