FAQs

What type of project surfaces can I paint it on?
Leather Studio™ paint can be applied to either brand new surfaces, or older used surfaces in need of an uplift!
Perfect leather or vinyl project surfaces include shoes, boots, purses, tote bags, vintage suitcases to name a few.
When cured, will my Leather Studio™ project surface be water resistant?
A Leather Studio painted project will be water resistant when cured, however, it is NOT waterproof.
What is a paper proof of a stencil?
A paper proof is a sample print of the stencil design, used for testing accuracy of overlays, alignment and colors and for practicing stenciling techniques. Paper proofs are also measurement tools for judging design placement for stenciling.
What is one color stenciling and how do I create this look?
One color stenciling is not just for beginners, it is quite popular in today's home fashions as a monochromatic or serene trend. The bonus for the beginner is that this type of stenciling is easy to do, yet achieves a decorator look. While many stencils are made for one color stenciling (one overlay), any stencil can be used. When there are multiple overlays, simply use the same color with each.
One Color Stenciling with a Brush: Stencil with a light circular stroke. Swirl paint on the entire cut out area or around the outer edges of the design. Add more pressure to your brush, not more paint, continuing with a clockwise, then counter-clockwise, motion.
One Color Stenciling with a Roller: A foam roller is an excellent tool for stenciling large areas with an overall coverage. With the stencil taped securely in place, roll back and forth, applying even pressure. Roll in several directions, distributing color to the edges of the stencil.
When will my Leather Studio™ paint project surface be cured?
Your Leather Studio painted project will be fully cured 48 hours after completion.
