Leather Painting

Hosted by Jordan Piantedosi. Come enjoy some creative experiments painting on leather!  We will provide special leather paint, all supplies needed, scrap leather to practice on, & guidance to help you customize your unique project.

Please bring one or two leather objects (examples: bag, jacket, wallet, dress, shoes, etc) that you find a bit boring & ready for a colorful glow-up!  

TIPS: Any leather works except for very glossy leather or patent leather, and pleather/PVA.  For leather shoes, suede is ideal because it’s very absorbent.  A beat-up pair of suede shoes can be completely transformed with a few coats of Angelus paint.  It’s an EXTREMELY satisfying experience that we would love to share with you!

Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit of paint on (hint: loud floral prints seem to absorb colorful drips & spills)

Snack and sip while you paint!
