I’ve been lusting over the Claire Vivier neon stripe clutch, it’s a known fact. And it’s all over the blogopshere. Every time I come across it, I’ve been tempted too many times to click ‘add to cart’. $173 (before shipping) was a bit more than I was hoping to spend on a clutch. So it’s a DIY project to try.
I came across a discounted bronze finished wristlet at Accessorize for only SG$15, bought a can of spray and DIY my own version. It’s not as perfect as the original, but I guess I can make do with this for now. And I may just attempt another variation of it soon! Have fun!
Things you need:
1. A clutch of your choice
2. A can of spray in any color
3. Masking tape
Step 1. Masking out the area that you do not wish to spray and tape it down flat against the surface to avoid any color running in. I did a vertical down right in the middle just like the original. You can also do a half horizontal design which is pretty cool too.
Step 2. Line the area with news paper
Step 3. Spray away! I forgot to prime with white paint hence the need to spray many many many layers. Do remember to let it dry partially before adding another layer.
Step 4. Let it dry for approx 1 hour before spraying the flip side. Leaving the partially dried spray on the news paper will only cause the ink on the paper to transfer to the paint.
Step 5. When dry completely, remove all masking and rock your DIY clutch!
