Spray Painting Suede

I had a question asked concerning spray painting suede boots, as popular opinion is that suede boots cannot be spray painted. My boots are "faux suede", or should I say more like faux nubuck and I have every intention of spray painting them gold. Blogger cb also bought faux suede boots and had great success spray painting them using FABRIC spray paint; here is the website of the actual brand that she bought and her photos:

The type of spray paint that cb used is called "Stencil Spray Paint For Fabric" the colour she applied is copper and it took two cans to spray paint both boots to the finish you see above. The boots look great , shimmery without any type of cracking or peeling. In fact I am so impressed with the patina I am getting the exact same paint for my boots in gold. It costs $6.50US which is around the same price one can of the regular vinyl spray paint.

So, now you know that you CAN spray paint suede, just look for the right type of spray paint for your project.

Sunday Lime

Sweet Eye's Christmas show yesterday was unbelievably almost sold out by the time I got there, which was around 35 minutes after the official start. I still managed to score a necklace and a pair of ear rings that will match my costume! yay for me, sorry to all the people who turned up later and left empty handed:

It was amazing to me that the jewelry was gone SO quickly, and there were some gorgeous pieces that I missed out on, like the matching bracelet to my necklace. Hopefully after Carnival we will again be treated to another show.

After that little soiree at Sweet Eye it was off to Triniscene's Christmas Lime in Valsayn which was a "thank you" to their friends, supporters and well wishers. Twas a nice get together; I had fun, enjoyed some pastelles, ruined my diet and even bounced up a blogger!

The lime was not only in Trinidad over the weekend as the bloggers overseas met up for a baby shower AND a birthday brunch. I saw the photos, you ladies looked like you had a great time!
