Here’s my painting process:
1. After cutting out, hot gluing the details and SEALING the craft foam in mod podge, I spray it all flat black. One coat usually covers it really well.
2. When it dries, I rub in some metallic silver fabric paint. this first rub in is very crude, and cover a bit of everything except for the creases.
3. The crude silver pieces are misted over with black paint again. I hold the can away at a farther distance than before, and just let the mist of the black paint waft onto the pieces.
4. I repeat step 2. Rubbing in some leather on the raised edges and just a few smudges in the center of flat areas. I mist like in step 3 if necessary.
And ta da! Finished worn leather looking craft foam! It’s a tedious job doing this process piece by pice, and it each mist and weather may only make a difference to my own eyes, but it works!
Today after class I’ll be fastening all these pieces to my jumpsuit so I’ll post pictures of that later tonight.
