I’ve had this yellow wallet for years, and since I bought a new one recently, old yellow is not really getting any use. So I grabbed some of my trusty textile paint and got to work.
Clean your wallet as best you can with a little soap and water (or leather cleaner). And choose your color combo. I picked red-orange and fuchsia textile paint and decided at the last minute to keep a pop of the original yellow as well.
Next, it’s time to grab your paint brush and paint away. Pay close attention to even strokes and don’t be afraid to layer up! I ended up painting at least three coats of the red since it’s a bright color and I wanted it to really pop.
Choose an area for your accent color (optional). My wallet had a natural place to add my accent color, find yours if you want it to look like you bought it that way.
If you want to share your artistic side, choose a less expected area for your accent color – maybe a fun shape or stripes.
