Step 1: Protect unpainted areas

  • Make sure you have all your supplies to hand. Choose paint colours that match your artistic vision.
  • Use masking tape to mark off areas you don't want to paint. This guarantees clean, precise lines.
  • Carefully wipe the leather pouches with the degreasing primer. A clean surface will ensure optimal paint adhesion.

Step 2: Apply the colours

  • Start by applying the first coat of paint to the pouch. Use regular strokes to ensure even application. Leave to dry completely.
  • Once the first coat is dry, add details, patterns or textures with finer brushes. Be creative and experiment!

Step 3: Apply subsequent coats if necessary

  • Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next coat or handling the pouches.
  • If you want to intensify the colours, add extra coats, allowing each coat to dry between applications.

Step 4: Admire your creation

  • Carefully remove the tape to reveal clean, defined lines.
  • Once everything's dry and finished, admire your personalised leather pouches! They are ready to use or give as a gift.

Don't forget to adjust these steps according to your artistic vision and preferred technique!
