A dear friend of mine recently dropped of a huge box of leather scraps at my house. She knows I love scraps like nobody’s business! I was so overwhelmed, I didn’t know where to start or what to make. So I eased into it with these painted leather rings. They are really easy to make and look like you could buy them at a boutique. Here’s how to do it:
Paint the leather with the Soft Paints, and add accent colors.
Cut the edges however you want. I did a lot of mini-snips and then worked the leather to get it soft looking. What I love about the Soft Paints is that they stay on and don’t crack or flake off!
Next, add a healthy dot of 3D Paint and apply your gem. Let dry for 30 minutes or so.
Don’t forget to glue a ring to the back so you can wear it! You can also make pendants and cuff bracelets!
