Piping repair

This is a Coach New York City Kisslock tote. She came to me with worn through piping on all four lower corners. She is in amazing shape otherwise. I am repairing the worn through piping with 5 minute epoxy to stabilize and strengthen the leather, using it to fill in the areas where the leather is missing. This will then be covered with a matching acrylic paint to blend in the repairs. I used my finger to dull the surface of the epoxy during the drying process so it would not be shiny.
