I just put 18 cups of bleach in my washing machine - am I going to die?
>>itt diy til u die
Going to do this on a blue french worker jacket
here are some patches I just got from Mean Folk, ideas for where to put them?
also, places to get patches?
Lol thats nice!
Put all the shit you don't wear on that bleaching machine and make a ton of Palewave fits.
What color was the hoodie? I want a pink hoodie as well man. That would look so 80s retro futurism.
It started off a dark navy (see the drawstrings and stitching). I just se the wash to 'small load' and 'hot' and while the water is filling I put in about 10 cups of bleach. After it fills, just toss it in and let it do a full wash.
Okay, this is going to be sketchy, especially asking this board. However...
What is some high quality fabric paint that will work on leather? What would the general process of painting on leather look like?
I like this one a lot. Just swatches of color
Seriously...the fabric paint...help
The moonrunes are retarded, don't get me wrong
But the execution is fantastic. And album-themed, painted fashion pieces have been...you know, the tiniest bit successful before
This had to be his inspiration, and he just let memes get in the way of it. Shitty for him, but good for the rest of us who can learn from his terrible, terrible mistake and ruined life
I know you're probably being sarcastic, but this place works best when the people here actually give a shit.
I can't tell what you're trying to go for with these. Patches are great for a lot of things, but if they don't work together, then they don't work. Styles are usually pretty stupid when you cross them.
>'70s, '80s, God forbid the '90s, marxist, anarchist, fascist, crust, homeless, bored suburbanite, post-surf rock, whatever
>lunarcore, NASA engineer, Weyland-Yutani employee, Blade-Runner, cosmonaut, Formula-1 driver, etc. etc.
Pic is going for something reminiscent of x-files, for example.
>truck driver, mechanic, Appalachian sister-fucker, homeless Florida guy, wannabe NASCAR driver, all that shit
Doesn't matter if you don't have cohesion. You need cohesion. If you're going for one look, you have to focus on that one look. The bottom left is kinda reminiscent of something off tumblr or a modern joke shirt. The top is like something out of an '80s National Lampoon movie. Both of those things are fine if you do them right (I don't know how, I guess you could figure it out), but they just don't make any sense together, not even in an intentionally post-modern, nonsensical-for-the-laffs kind of way
Just something to think about if you do end up using them, or even move on to bigger projects.
Ah, thought you were talking about the Filth denim, too
Same story though. The guy looks ridiculous, no question. Hat looks fucking ridiculous. Mustache fits with jacket but nothing else. Shoe-sock combo is vomitous. Lanyard retarded. Cargo shorts need not be mentioned.
That said, under the field of shit, he had a good idea. Just couldn't pull it off. Tried too much, too hard, all at once. We can still take his idea, and be thankful we were granted with taste in form and color and the ability to pick and choose what we like in something new, and not absorb the entire thing. That's how you progress in your work.
Everybody's favorite. Don't forget to cut off the flag before you dye, and wait a few days before sewing it back on, unless the completely muted color thing is what you're going for.
Would also suggest getting a liner to go with them if you live somewhere cold. They're not zip-in, unfortunately, but cutting them up and attaching buttons/snaps/just seeing the damn thing in is good practice
Also on the parka, it almost looks better if some of the pattern still shows through. You can always add dye later.
One of the best punk aesthetics you could ever ask for, and a good indication how to still use color in those kinds of fits
I'm glad nobody cares about this thread and I've got free reign
This kind of fit is why DIY is up there among the ultimate fashionable expressions of basically anybody below a full-fledged, established designer. It lets you develop specific images, come to understand how silhouettes fit together structurally, how colors and patterns play on each other, how fabric can be made to flow or conform and how combinations of textures and stiffness and stitching can change everything: comfort, movement, drape, pull, wear...
Plus, it allows for grand artistic expression, is fun, and eventually lets you show yourself off exactly as you want to be seen
Yeah this has been pretty good and been somewhat insporation to me,I've had some clothes I've wanted to adjust but I never got arounf to it.
Does anyone know where you find guides for stuff like sowing,dying,finding materialetc?
be aware that high concentrations of bleach will actually start to eat away at the fibers of the fabric
your clothes will literally start to fall apart
do several rounds of diluted bleaching versus one super bleach
lol none of this is diy
it's all Helmut Lang
although I guess I could see why you'd mistake it for diy because of the way Panos Yiapanis styled everything
that whole retrospective/editorial is one of my favorites
I should have posted in this thread instead of making a separate one.
What happens if I bleach an eastpak?
anyone actually sew thier own pants?
these are my pair almost 3 years old
Going to do this to some older jeans and take a look at a couple of thrift stores for more denim to mess with.
Would a pair of jeans half bleached look goofy?
On leather? Recently I embroidered on a pleather jacket
Any way, it was really hard to not stitch into the the layer inner layer that wasnt the outside pleather layer. It got there a couple times and i got really frustrated that i snapped the thread but i was basically finished it anyway. It looks rough but I guess thats the effect people want. Relatively happy with it. I embroidered a cicada for good luck. I'm gonna add moths later when i have time.
I used a back stitch the whole while.
Yes it will desu
you could try is bleaching and then dyeing the fabric afterwards.
but then again the sterling ruby x raf was really dope and if you bleach it right maybe you can make something like it
Anyone who posts pictures like this, and is responded to with trips, will receive all negative effects themselves, and everyone else will be immune.
Behold. Now have fun balding asshole.
the constellation is photo shopped on the bag.
when he made it for real he said he used some type of fabric marker and i remember eh didnt put all the tiny stars on and just did the constellations
too bad archive is down or i would find it for you
Plan is to put the skull(a band logo) onto the back of a black hoodie and mayhaps cut the flowers from the t-shirt and put onto the front of the hoodie.
Also I'd kind of want the shirt as it is but with a bigger neck as its kind of small, is that easily fixable?
Is there a specific name to altering the neck of your hoodie like this? Someone has to know what I'm talking about.
Lol accidentally posted this in waywt.
Took a Russian flight bomber and cold water dyed it to get the camo affect. Then I added some patches to each arm
I did this autistic collection of colors resulting from bleaching a black tee (looking at photos on google)
It's all yours
what do you mean?
there is nothing to understand,
i just took all the colors in the photos i found on google then i put them in this picture, dividing the yellowish, the orangeish and the pinkish ones
i believe every time you bleach something black you can get a random color from these, depending, idk, from the nature of the original dye, and the fabric maybe?
(ps I did this insane work basicall because i really like this kind of color shades deriving from bleach)
What paint should i use 2 do smthing like this?
I don't have much experience but here is what I am working on atm
I am probably going to add patches to this one and the other ones ill just add to when i get some more ideas
mastermind Japan. Just going off the skulls.
These were listed as "over dyed" hoodies, is it possible to make something like this with a regular hoodie? Overdye it?
OP update, dip-dyed. Gonna rinse it tonight and plan a decal for the front. I'm thinking something raf-ish
Have to rebleach the bottom a little to take care of those stray drops
Ideally spray paint. High quality.
Brands like Montana, etc.
Spray the paint against cardboard or whatever and keep spraying until it starts to drip onto the shoes.
Also just buy the Margielas you fucking pleb.
Anyone got any experience with bleaching a M65 from the sixties?
Unfortunately it got a little washed out in the rinse, I'll try a higher concentration and do some research on the best ways to keep dye in fabric. Dressed like a slouch for road trip atm, but here it is
is that black dye?I kinda like the gradient on it. but the black dye reminds me a lot of these>>10938684 I wonder what would happen if you put it in the dye for a really short amount of time then rinsed it out what color would it go
