    I'm doing something like this, denim jacket died black with black waxed kangaroo sleeves, blatant rip off that dude on SZ. I've got a break soon, hoping to get it finished up [​IMG] edit: if it is not a failure I will take many a photo

    Really wanna see pics of this denim/leather jacket idea. The thread on SZ doesn't have any detailed pics. Where does one get the leather for the sleeves?

    Kinda related... Someone I know went to a Holi with his jeans and they ended up looking like this. [​IMG] I would do it if I had a retired pair of jeans or a pair of true beaters. Probably looks pretty good with faded paint.

    Been messing around with bleach on old clothes...keep getting a yellowish tint though. Any suggestions? I think a truer white would be cooler.

    Kinda boring, but I dyed a couple shirts. They were white but tainted from bleeding denim. Started with just RIT Wine dye, which turned out to be bright fuck-me-in-the-ass fuschia, so I redyed them black. I think they're alright, the tee came out the same color as Silent sea lavendar IRL, sans the pit stains haha. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks good but the pit stains are a bummer. Try bleaching! [​IMG]

    Blueberry linen turned out much more subtle than expected. Would've been a uniform light blue, had I not chucked all the blueberries at it while it was drying. [​IMG]

    This thread is great, the linen shirt looks really nice actually as do those almost fully bleached denim. Newbie question but for shirts that have staining that isn't too severe if it was dry cleaned and then died black would that work fully do you think? Thanks

    why dont you use blue dye and get bits of cloth and roll it up and throw it in the dye mix to give the blueberry effect.
