couple questions for the DIY pros:
I'm looking to get some docs to go with some of the YYPH stuff I've been getting. I want to get all black, but I don't really like how shiny the leather is. I prefer this finish:
How difficult would it be to black out the soles and stitching? just tape off the boot and spray paint it? use black acrylic? I've got access to all sorts of paint, so whatever is best.
Also, I have a levi's denim jacket that I think I want to bleach white. After i do that, I'd be interested in some kind of dark grey dye that would remain more in the seams and folds of the jacket, but come out of the larger flat spaces. I guess I want to ink wash the jacket. any suggestions?
One of those fat super-permanent black markers? (sharpies will probably be too blue/purple in this setting and not permanent enough)
What about spraying them with a can of vinyl dye? That should work a lot better than paint since it will allow the sole to flex
