    It is probably not a good thing that I found that paint. I have already splashed it on a pair of trainers as well...Must....Not...Paint...Canvas...Boots....

    I'm all for that, but man, I kind of hate doc martens. I think I pretty much only like them on patrik ervell, and I still don't really like them.

    they're pretty fun to stomp around in all unlaced and obnoxious. i imagine it's kind of like dunks where you look down and you're like what the hell is that monstrosity on my feet!

    More pics and details (i.e. what jeans, what paint, etc.). It's nice out now and I feel like being obnoxious all spring and summer with light denim paired with high tops and retarded tees or tank tops.

    Let's see, old 7fam carrot fit jeans from an ex girlfriend, not sure of the fit because i just covered it with paint; latex exterior house paint in blindingly white white (I think, I hope). I need some more projects. the jeans should work OK with the paint since they're on the looser side, and I'm betting that the paint will stiffen them up. I will have to see if it takes multiple coats or what, because currently it's really soaking into the fabric. I should have gone to art school or something, I've spent the last half hour doodling inside my jeans.

    I tried that a few years ago with latex based paint (2 coats) and they do become like cardboard. Also they trap heat so I never ended up wearing them as the idea was to wear them in the summer. Maybe you could tough it out. The texture is kind of similar to the N&F reverse fades just heavier.
