If you do a lot of DIY projects, you probably know what I am talking about when your friends and family show up with loads of tossed off items that "they just knew you could do something with it." I am lucky to have that problem. When my first cousin brought me this interesting silver toned pleated purse, I immediately was inspired to make it a lot more interesting using products by Jacquard.
I love using Lumiere on surfaces such as leather and vinyl because it adds such a rich shine. Neopaque is the perfect compliment to it because it covers the surface with an opaque finish. This means you do not have to use multiple coats the surface, usually one does the trick!
To add details, I used the handle of a foam brush and black neopaque paint to create dots on the pleat that was painted Neopaque in turquoise.
On the white panel, I opted for stripes painted in Lumiere Crimson. I added details with a black fine point tee juice marker. I have recently discovered the fun of using tee juice markers on top of Jacquard paints.
Jacquard Lumiere, Neopaque and Tee juice markers can be purchased from Dick Blick Art Materials.
