RE-DO- Stained Clutch

I can't even remember where I got this clutch from, but its bin around for years.

I used these two paints to get the desired shade: Metallic Acrylic Paint- 'Aztec Gold' & two drops of 'Antique Gold'. Added two drops of water and mixed.

It dried (about 75 percent) pretty fast so I was able to paint the whole clutch in one shot.

Bought this chain at a craft store for $1. I measured the length, cut it with a cutter thing and used the remaining piece for a "necklace" (Inspired by Qochemist). Super Cute!!! (I still have to add the hook to it)


Ok. I don't know if these chains come in gold cause that would of saved me tons of time.
This is what I did to apply the pain onto the chain

I had to blow between the links to get rid of the paint bubbles and used the brush to touch up any silver parts.

That didn't work too well. The paint was still coming off.THEN  I remembered that it didn't have to be perfect. It's just a chain and I'm a human being. Also, it kind of matched because there is a little silver on the side of the clutch :)

I kept adjusting the chain while it dried so it would not dry with paper attached to it

When everything dried, I got thread that match the clutch and a big needle.
I sewed the ends of the chain onto the inside corner fold of the bag.

Much better :)
