Anyone have any experience trying to DIY Raf Simons Sterling Ruby bleach jeans?
I have a spare pair of black Levi's lying around and nothing to do with them
The only thing I'm debating is how I would get the platter, I feel like I shouldn't go Jackson Pollack with bleach all over my floor
originally this http://www.joesnewbalanceoutlet.com/detail.asp?style=MT410BK
just found lying around and are very comfy thinking of readding 2 N's to one side each
I've done black chucks a bunch of times and it was pretty easy to get them to come out similar to those jeans
I did it in the shower
Make sure you wash them out quickly when they reach the color you want so you don't over-stress the fabric
test for color-fastness between the leather and the paint. you could do this in small amounts on the inside lining, just to see if the paint adheres well and retains its color.
once you have an appropriate paint, wrap parts of the shoe you don't want affected in painters tape or gauze or something like that
lay down some cardboard or parchment on the floor and do some test flings and drips to practice getting a satisfactory result. once you've got that down, put your wrapped shoes on the parchment and go to town.
make sure to wear clothes and shoes you don't care about and u mite want a painter's smock or a kitchen apron.
let the paint on the shoes dry. then spray a few coats of clear fixative over them. let each coat dry before applying the next.
planning on doing some diy converse x margiela painted chucks soon...
pic related. the guy did it with some black shoes. looks pretty cool in a picture but im really wondering what it would look like in real life.
Im doing such a jacket right now!
Went to this
look at the tag, think youll have a pretty good laugh =)
One of the coolest diy jackets I've seen.
here are mine. i think they turned out pretty well and look nice and grungy
It's pretty simple!
I bought four bottles of pic related and filled a bucket with three of them, no water added.
I then let it rest in it for aprox five hours or so (turning the jacket around every now and then) But it was still really blue. A lighter shade but no where near white. So i decided to wash it in the washingmashine with half a bottle of Danclorix added where you usually put the powder/gel. I did this 2 times, but i still wasnt pleased. I put it back in the bucket and left it there for over a day (moving the jacket every now and then again) till it looked that way.
I washed it three times, but there is still a slight chlorine smell in it. Maybe it takes another day al fresco (wtf dict.cc?) till that is gone.
I don't know if the washing maschine part was necessary in the aftermath, since it didnt change the shade all to much, but maybe it loosened the molecules, haha, no idea.
Oh, and it seems like the bleach works best around the first inch above the liquidlevel. Seems like it needs Oxygen to react, but I'm no chemist.
The stitching around the buttonholes is still slightly blue, but thats no big deal for me.
mine were initially regular converse with black canvas. i then painted them with 2 coats of red acrylic paint. Then I painted with 1 coat of white acrylic. Then I wore them for a year. Then I painted them with another coat of white acrylic and have been wearing them for a couple months since then.
Is the guy that did these on?
Would you mind explaining your process?
DIY threads are the greatest
I'm gonna thrift a leather jacket and paint words onto it. Something like this, but a different message.
Anyone know what sort of paint I should use?
I don't have it done yet due to wind, but within the next few days I'm planning on painting something on the back of a plain black zip hoodie. I'm thinking of something like Composition London or Tableau 2 kind of style.
Copped a flecktarn parka a while back but it's too big.
Is there anything I can do to it?
i bought these hilfiger pair at 16 usd some months ago in a thrift store but have only used them twice so far since i'm not a big fan of the cream color, i was painting the dark green details with a black sharpie and then remembered that i can dye them.
Should I? If so what color would look good on them?
Any good embroidery tips? Gonna embroider this on the pocket of a tee tonight or tomorrow.
