I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting a lot lately, but I will try to have at least one post a week from now on. And today, I have a tutorial for you! I’m going to show you how to make geometric printed jeans. It’s really simple and easy.
The materials you need:
- Jeans (or any type of pants you want to decorate)
- Sponges (or carved potatoes, stamps, etc…really anything that can make a cool print)
- Acrylic or fabric paint (use sharpies for a more detailed pattern!)
- Cup of water (just to rinse your brushes in)
- Paint palette (or any container that you can mix paint in)
- Old tablecloth (or newspaper or anything to protect your floor or table from paint)
1) Pick a pair of pants to decorate and gather the materials listed.
2) Now, get your materials ready.
I mixed the two blues together to make median shade of the two. I also mixed the paint in an old mushroom container. Before, I started painting I also looked up printed shorts online. My shorts were inspired by these shorts:
AND…Versace’s Resort 2016 collection has a bunch of cool colors and patterns, you could try too!
3) Make a plan.
I knew I wanted to make a simple vertical pattern. So, this is what I came up with.
4) Paint it.
I painted a pattern covering the whole front side. Then, I decided that I did not want such a loud pattern on the back, so I only colored the jean pockets.
5) Wait for it to dry, then rinse them in cold water or warm water. Then let the pants dry.
I’m going to let mine dry overnight. And the next morning I rinsed them out and let it dry. You can wear your pants after this. But I find the hardness of the pants, due to the paint, a bit uncomfortable, so I’ll probably wash them in the washing machine first and soften then in the dryer for a few minutes.
And I’ll show you the results soon in a lookbook. Until then, I will be posting an earrings haul next. And as always, thank you so much for visiting my blog. If you have any questions or idea for a new DIY please comment below. Thanks and have an awesome day!
