I love to test new products to see if they are really all they are cracked up to be. When DecoArt’s new Patent Leather Paint arrived, I was not convinced that it would look all that great. After all, how many times do you paint shoes, purses or belts??
I looked in my closet and found a pair of brown sandals. I really liked them, but rarely wear dark brown in the summertime. Determined to find out about the paint, I put the first layer on the leather straps. Yuck, however, I did not except the first layer to cover perfectly. So, I added a second coat, then a third. At this point, I could see potential. From experience, I know it is ALWAYS best to add several thin coats as opposed to a thick heavy layer. This eliminates any lumps, bumps or ridges of thick paint. One more coat…
The last coat was beyond belief! The sandals were smooth, and flexible, the color was stunning and, BEST OF ALL, they didn’t look hand painted. These sandals look super expensive and very classy! Check out my new “expensive” looking sandals!
So to recap, the new DecoArt Patent Leather paint comes in 13 amazing colors and can be used to refresh or restyle leather and leather-like surfaces with this high-gloss acrylic paint. That means that it can be used not only for fashion accessories, but also for leather, or faux leather surfaces such as ottomans, chairs, cushions, etc… As well as used to embellish or add design to any of these surfaces!!! In addition to being water based and non toxic, this paint is specially formulated to be flexible to prevent cracking or peeling. My mind is absolutely swirling with all the possibilities that this unique paint offers!
