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.


  1. nice blog
    thanks for sharing information.
    At the top of the fashion world today you will find exciting new designs of leather pants. These pants are very different from the ones of yesterday that did not have much shape or style.
