Face Lift For An Old Purse

Got an old purse that looks a little worse for wear? Give it a new paint job. Nylon purses are the best to work with I find. Sponge or paint on some background colors. I like to use Lumiere paints or Decor It ink. Then, using the same paints or inks, stamp on some images. I used leaves to make a fall purse. Foam decorator stamps work well or any kind of bold stamp. You can heat set with a heat gun but only until the wetness of the paint disappears. You don't want to heat too long or have the heat gun too close or the paint will bubble and the nylon will probably burn. When dry, glitz up with jewels, glitter glue or tiny beads. The photos show both sides of the purse.
