...than to begin meticulous labor-intensive unimportant self-centered projects when I have so much else to do!!! But I can not deny the call of the wild, so here I go again. This project is pretty heavily influenced by a pair of studded Preen trousers that I encountered online, and the idea was further solidified by seeing the detail shot of a pair of Givenchy leggings from FW10. I've had a bag fully of the tiniest pyramid studs, but haven't had anything to stick them into. I decided on spray painting them black because A) I love torturing myself with tedious prep work and B) enjoy the subtlety of their texture against black leather. I'm hoping to be done in the next day or two!
The original color of the studs. Don't you keep your hardware in wine glasses too?
My solution for spray painting the studs. Yes, they are individually pushed into a piece of cardboard. Probably the most annoying part of the process yet completely unavoidable.
One leg done, one left to go.
