This is a post about making lemonade when you get lemons (literally, if you use the definition of lemon: a faulty product). I love the galaxy trend and I planned a tutorial for a galaxy tote bag to dip my feet into the pool. I got all the supplies including the tulip metallic spray paints below, which I thought would be perfect. I began the project only for the paints to stop spraying after a few squirts! I was so dissapointed but I kept them because the paint is a really good quality even if the sprayers aren’t. Now, months later, my hording has paid off and I found a great use for them!
- Painters Tape
- Metallic Fabric Paint (Mine has a good consistency because its for spraying, if you use regular fabric paint you may need to water it down just a tad)
- Plastic tarp/protective surface
Step 1: Cover anything like zippers or snaps that you don’t want to get messy with your painters tape.
Step 2: Choose which colors you want to use, a couple or all of them, go crazy! Then remove the top of the sprayer and using a gloved finger, flick the straw at your wallet. You can also pull back and then release the straw to create splatters as well.
Experiment with distance for different size and distribution of your splatters.
Let dry. I left mine alone for a day just to be safe.
I love giving my necessary accessories a little bit of a personal touch and if you do too you may like my comfy camera strap tutorial. If you like fun abstract painting you may like my watercolor marbles journal diy.
Til Next Time!
