Lumiere Paints, Leather, basket, Americana
One interlocking template piece pdf included.
No glue or staples needed.

Paint is one of the quickest and easiest ways to craft. Many people don’t realize how quality of paint can improve a crafts look or turn it into a disaster. For my project I used Lumiere Acrylic paints which has the best coverage and choice of beautiful colors. This paint is now my favorite to use for all of painting crafts. Check out my project to see how well only one coat on leather works.
