The plan was to apply the polyacrylic ... sew on snaps and adornments ... but had to dilemna first.
I was checking over the bag this morning when I realized I had a little paint transfer on the inside top edge that I didn't like. So decided to paint it ... Turned the purse inside out and took outside to the paint box. Spray painted a light blue and hung up to dry.
Went back out two hours later and the bag was still tacky to the touch ... hummmm
Went back out after another 4 hours and the bag was still tacky. Darn ....
I'd used the paint previously so decided the inside of the bag is coated ... has a rubber feel ... probably coated for ease of cleaning, as well as increased durability. Did a google on how to fix ...
At dinner, bantered it about with Beau, Alex and Mary. Beau suggested I sand it ... Alex & Mary couldn't even drum up interested.
Later, I got to thinking about how we clean my hands of spray paint with WD-40. Took it out to the garage and sprayed. Firmly wiped down the spray painted interior and ... gosh ... the tacky paint came off, leaving just a very light blue color behind. Took back in the house, layed out on the counter and cleaned thoroughly with dish soap and a scrub brush to ensure residue & smell went away. Then tossed in the dryer. Well, learned that the bags will wash and wear very nicely.
