Looking for a fun, easy, and therapeutic craft? You've found it here! I really enjoyed painting these triangles. They are not perfect, and I like it that way. First, I vigorously wiped the area where I was going to paint with a damp cloth to remove any old dirt. I've read that some leather has a finish on it that can be removed with acetone, or alcohol. I didn't seem to have a problem with the paint adhering to this leather. To make sure my lines were somewhat even, I used blue painter's tape, which worked well and came off easily. Then, simply paint away!
I used water-based acrylic paint:
I haven't painted the other side yet, but I'm thinking about doing a big letter L for Lori. Or maybe I'll put a bird on it :)
