I got this beautiful vintage purse for a steal at Goodwill which I had for about a year until I was suddenly struck with inspiration from a mask I wore at New Year's.
1 vintage purse
1 mask (mine came from H&M)
1 small paintbrush
Complimentary Paint (I used this paint because it's water soluble and I'm a klutz)
2 large address labels
1 sheet regular paper
Step 1) The purse was patent leather, which resists paint. Rub the area you're working with with acetone nail polish remover to remove the sheen. You can also use a metal scrubbie to buff it off.
Step 2) Trace a mask onto paper. If you have even a hint of artistic talent or even fairly steady hands you may be able to skip this step, but not I.
Step 4) Tape it in place on the purse. Then trace the eyes onto label paper. Using the mask as a guide, stick them in place.
Step 6) Remove the paper and the eyes.
Step 7) Use a wet, soapy rag to carefully clean any rough edges.
Step 8) Insist your fiance call you Martha Fucking Stewart for the rest of the day.
