So I have a reveal of a bag that I purchased on ebay for a very decent price. The item was listed in excellent condition, but when it arrived it was littered with pen marks all over the front of the bag. I did not want to send the bag back because it came to me at a decent price and because it was actually a very pretty bag.
So, I decided to be unconventional in my rehab and use it as a canvas.
And the start of my Rehab. First I used my dremel and Wenal polish to fix up the hardware and started my painting. Here are photos on my drawing and color wash. I was SO NERVOUS drawing on this bag. It went against every rehab bone in my Coachie body. I have seen the results of peoples paintings on leather and mostly I hate it. I did not want it to look cheesy.
And my finished product after finishing and sealing.
This is an ink and acrylic work. I did several thin watered down layers of paint as directed on leatherworker.net and finished with a sealer also recommended by leatherworker.net. There are several and you can get a few from Tandy.
