The Art of Revival: Our Secret to Painting Vintage Handbags

At New Vintage Handbags, we're passionate about giving old treasures a new lease on life. Our unique process of painting vintage handbags has been perfected over time, and we're proud to share the results with our clients. But, let's be honest – we can't reveal all our secrets. After all, we've worked hard to develop our special techniques, and we wouldn't want someone to copy our methods.

What we can say is that our application process is designed to ensure the paint stays intact, even in the most challenging conditions. Whether your handbag gets caught in a rainstorm or accidentally gets splashed with coffee, our paint won't wash away.  We are often asked if we use a sealer, the answer is sometimes we do and sometimes we do not.  It depends on the bag material and number of layers of paint. 

So, how do we achieve this level of durability? It's all about the formula. Our paint is specifically designed to adhere to the material of the handbag, creating a long-lasting bond that won't chip or fade. And, once applied, the paint becomes an integral part of the bag's design – it's not just a surface-level decoration.

Now, you might be wondering – what happens if I want to change up my design? The good news is that our paint can't be removed, but it can be painted over. Yes, you read that right – you can layer new designs on top of existing ones! We've had customers come to us with monograms they want to cover up, and we've successfully painted new designs over them. It's like a game of artistic hide-and-seek. Let's face it, we are located in Las Vegas where ladies are changing the letters in their monograms on a frequent basis if you know what I mean.

At New Vintage Handbags, we're committed to providing high-quality, unique pieces that will make you stand out from the crowd. Our process is tried and tested, and our customers rave about the results. So, if you're looking for a way to give your vintage handbag a fresh new look without sacrificing its timeless charm, we're here to help.
