Belt Buckle Redo

Good morning and welcome to my second post of the month for Sakura Craft and Hobby.  I cannot tell you how much I love using their 3d Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers.  I'm not much of a painter, but if I were, I would paint the world with these two items.

Today I want to show you the difference in colors.  I purchased this belt at a closeout store.  I think I paid 50 cents for it.  I loved the detail in the buckle and new I could "fix" it up.  I just really wasn't too keen on the metal look, but I loved the design of the buckle.

I mixed the Interference Lilac Pearl with the 3D Crystal Lacquer and just painted the buckle with it.  I missed and some got on the leather part of the belt and I LOVED the color it gave.  Sometimes oopses are happy mistakes.  Anyway, so you can see what the difference in the "color" there is depending on what you are applying the "paint" to.

It turned out soft on the metal part.  I love the "lavender" color on it.  Now the leather on the other hand became very bold.  I just love the contrasts.  I added a few crystals because I have to have bling and created drab to fab.  Tell me what you think?

You have a couple of days left to get 20% off your order when you purchase any of their products here using the coupon code crystal06.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my transformation of the cool belt buckle and as always, Have a great day and God Bless.
