There are a variety of ways you can add patterns with paint. Adding a print to fabric, paper or even walls is an easy way to create a unique look. Pattern rollers have long been used to create the look of wallpaper on walls. Stamps, whether they are store bought or you make your own, are another way to create a custom design. Hand painting also gives you the freedom to create anything you want.

When adding a pattern to fabric with a paint roller or stamps add 2-Soft Fabric Medium to the paint you're using. A fabric paint additive will keep the printed fabric from loosing it's flexibility and softness once the paint is applied. Block printing is an easy way to add print to fabrics that has been done for many years. You can then use the fabric to create anything you like, from table cloths, curtains or clothes.

When it comes to bringing pattern into your home nothing makes more of a statement than wallpaper. The problem with wallpaper is that it can be expensive, hard to hang and comes in limited colors. Paint rollers give you the same effect, with none of the draw backs. All you have to do is find a pattern you like, a space you want to use it in and the color of your choice.

Whether you decide to paint a new design by hand or create stencils to add a pattern or monogram there are a few steps to follow to make sure your new design lasts.
The first step is to prepare the area that you plan on painting with Angelus Leather Prepare and Deglazer. This step will make sure that any finish is removed so paint can adhere to the leather.

Vinyl paper or Red Vinyl Tape can be used to create custom stripes, monograms or patterns. Apply your design with any of the Angelus paints. Several coats might be required to get the desired look. If you're using lighter colors over a darker material start with a white base to act as a sort of primer. This way the new, lighter color can come through clearly. Make sure to let the product completely dry between steps. 
When the design is finished seal it with Acrylic Finisher in the finish of your choice.
Whether you're giving new life to a vintage bag or customizing a new purse, Angelus paint can be a playful way to create your own one of a kind piece.
