Metallic Splatter Paint Wallet

May 30, 2015RaChil Luke

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!

titledfinaleI spruced up my plain black wallet in about six minutes, no joke. The splatter paint look gives it a little artsy flair that I am in love with. Learn the easy process below!

suppliesSupplies:

  • Wallet
  • 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)
  • Gloves
  • 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’ve been showing off my wallet to everyone! It makes me excited to bring it out at work or the grocery store, I don’t know if I’ve ever had a wallet I liked this much. Is that weird?

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.

    Very very easy, and very very cool. I used a toothbrush instead of a straw, and my splotches came out much smaller. I’m very pleased with the result, however.
