Spring Fashion Makeover

Spring Fashion Makeover

Posted by DecoArt on Mar 12th 2017

Color! It's my favorite thing for spring! Whether it's home decor or fashion, nothing brightens my spirits after a cold, bleak winter quite like a bold splash of color.

Who else is ready for sundresses and sandals and straw hats and warm, sunny days!


Items Needed:

  • DecoArt Patent Leather 2oz - Bright Pink
  • DecoArt Patent Leather 2oz - Turquoise
  • Spring Leather Accessories
  • Soft Brush


Before you head out and blow your budget on brand-new accessories, I'm going to let you in on a secret. Those fabulous pink patent leather sandals didn't always look so colorful and fabulous!

They were ho-hum white and tan until I transformed them with DecoArt's new Patent Leather Paint.

For my leather sandals, I used Bright Pink, painting it on the straps, select flower petals and the toe. It's best to use a soft-bristle brush with the self-leveling, high-gloss paint.

Here's the coverage after one coat.

After two coats, no brush strokes or white spots are visible. And the leather remains flexible and doesn't crack.

I also transformed a drab brown clutch from the thrift store using Turquoise Patent Leather paint.

Again, two coats did the trick.

Can you believe it's the same bag?
