Sorry about the bad pic. I'll try to get a better image this weekend.
I tried a different technique on the boots and glove cuffs. Instread of finding the right color vinyl or pleather I bought some lamb skin and painted it so that the color would be consistant through out. Also, since it's actually leather I pulled out some old leather craft tools that I haven't touched since I was a kid and formed the raised areas rather then glueing extra material to the patterns.
The paint used was Liquitex Acrylic Artist Colors (*Student Grade) with Acrylic Gloss Medium used as a primer.
*Save some money and use the Student Grade paints. As long as your not mixing colors, the Student Grade paints will work just as well as the expensive stuff.
The image on the left is a photo taken without a flash. The image on the right was taken with a flash and then I tweaked it a bit in photoshop.
