DIY Painting Faux Leather Pants

There are some great "Pleather" items out there on the market lately. They're inexpensive and can look like the real thing.

I purchased a pair of these pants at Zara and thought I would embellish the pockets with a bit of paint. If I ruined them, it wasn't such a big deal.

I used Martha Stewart Craft Paints, and a pencil eraser.

I just dipped the end of the pencil lightly into the paint and dotted it on to my pockets.

I was trying to create an "ombre" pattern of sorts. I started with the gold and once that dried, I used the side of the eraser to make the smaller blue dots. I'm really happy with the outcome.
