Hello friends. I have a fun little project today and though it’s not perfect, I really enjoyed the process. I used my favourite fabric paints SoSoft by Decoart and painted my jean pocket with my version of The Great Wave off Kanagawa. I filmed the process for you in case you’re interested.
Fine Point Permanent Marker
Place a piece of cardboard in the pocket.
Place a sturdy piece of cardboard or hard surface inside jeans. This will give you a sturdy surface to work on.
Tape around pocket using clear or masking tape.
Paint entire pocket white and allow to dry. I used a hairdryer to expedite the process.
Choose your design and sketch it using a fine point permanent marker.
Start painting as per reference photo.
Fill in the lines with permanent marker.
Remove tape. Allow to dry from 48-72 hours.
Like I said before, it’s not perfect, but I love the idea of having a custom piece of clothing to wear.
If you haven’t tried this paint yet, I thoroughly recommend it. I’m not sure how it works, but the end result is not stiff ,crack or peel even after several washes. 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope to see you very soon. xo
