tea dyed vans.png
3MB, 1000x951px
I know these threads are usually the same shit over and over, but every other type of thread is too. Here are some vans i dyed with tea. i like how they turned out. pretty much turned them into worn in looking vans without wearing them.
>>
why
>>
>>8419180
to have natural colored shoes instead of white hospital shoes
>>
>>8419158
pretty cool/10 op.
>>
what socks tho
>>
>>8419158
why did you put your foot on your credit card bill and bank statement to take a photo to post to 4chan?
>>
>>8419206

Not OP but I think I have the same ones I got from Topman
>>
>>8419158
i dyed my Chelsea boots and tapered some jeans and a knitwear jumper

Can I have details on what method you used to do this? I have all white sk8 his I would like to do this too.
>>
>>8419223
Post pic sounds cool. How did you tapers?
>>
>>8419247
i just got the cheapest black tea the grocery store had. i boiled a large pot of water big enough to fit both shoes in. put 5 or 6 teabags in and boiled it for a few minutes until it was really dark. i rinsed the shoes with tap water and put them in the pot and then removed the pot from the element and let the shoes soak in the hot tea for an hour and a half. then i removed the shoes, rinsed them with cold water and let them dry.

i'm not sure what caused the browner areas. they appeared over the course of drying. when i took them out of the tea they were a solid tan color.
>>

lol it was just auto on my d90

>>8419158
imma du dis 2 cps
>>
>>8419182

you bought the true white vans right?

I have those and they look shit pure white. any other way to tastefully discolor it without tea?
>>
Only problem is that you can see the water level stains, if it was more distributed and "even" it'd look better, but it's good nonetheless.
>>
>>8419502
Walk through mud and wipe the mud off.
>>
>>8419502
bury em
>>
>>8419502

Anyone know any DIY methods for yellowing a white sole faster other than walking around alot or going out in the mud rain?

>I already do both and play soccer and basketball in them.
>>
>>8419905
how are they?
i was thinking of buying a pair but they don't seem slim enough
>>
>>8420043
piss on them
>>
>>8420074
will do
>>
>>8420068
theyre great. the material is really nice. like almost iridescent in person. theyre pretty stiff when theyre new. similar to breaking in raw denim. they fit really well on me. definitely slimmer than on any pic i've seen of people wearing them. i'd size down on them though. they fit really generous in the waist. i have to wear a belt with the smallest size they make.

Is there a way of turning these white? They're pretty beat up.
>>
>>8420647
Why bother? Those are only like $75 right?
>>
Looks nice OP! I just hate that bright white new shoes effect in the bottom of your eyes when your walking :')

I usually take a piece of dried mud en scrape that over the side of new white soles.. the texture kinda absorbs the dust/sand. Looks a bit like you fastforwarded walking 2 weeks

for the boots i used black shoe grease and a shoe brush, i applied the grease on the boot and then heated it with a lighter but without burning the leather, then i quicly brush it off, the grease stays there, the bad thing is that when they leather gets scratched you can see the original colour of the leather

for the jeans i just sewed them from the groin seam and then gradually making them narrower following a very long curve until the knee, then staright from the knee, you have to unstitch the cuff and then sew it again once you´re done with the leg

i might make an infographic on it when i have enough time and some jeans to taper
>>
Is there a way to paint the stitching of these sneakers black? Minding the fact that they're leather, not canvas? I'm worried about fucking up the leather in the process.

Made this top from a Japanese pattern book. This is just test fabric. I'll get some nicer fabric and better matching colors next weekend. Not sure if it's too costumey to wear out, but it was easy to make and I think looks cool.

your post made me realize how this board is missing guides for DIY clothes. as someone who wants to get into clothing design, i dont know where else i could learn, besides going to a trade school.
>>
>>8426322
yeah pretty much. might just bin em
>>
>>8419158
you just ruined some nice vans
>>
>>8426377
Oh I get it. But you didn't actually take clothing with the geometric print on it, cut it up and stitch it on did you? It doesn't look completely the same as the geometric print on the drkshdw stuff, so where did you get it?
>>
Would cutting the stamp of a t-shirt and sewing it on a hoodie/jacket be ok? I'm thinking of cutting a old joy division shirt and sewing it on some AA hoodie.
>>
>>8427541
try it, but wearing anything joy division related on your clothing is pathetically tumblr core. its the type of thing people will be laughing behind your back at if you go into any moderately hip neighborhood
>>
>>8427554
i like post-punk, and the dark feel of it. also, undercover's joy division collection was pretty awesome
>>
>>8427562
i like post punk too. i also like joy division. im just saying that there joy division has a stigma of being a common thing for dilettantes to pretend to like. and about undercover. that is different because of it being a japanese company. they just did a psychocandy collection which is right up there with entry level tumblr core people.

but its kindof like supreme. if you wear it in the us, there is alot of stigma of being a follower or fake fashion fan, whereas in japan nobody cares about odd future or swagfags

I made these two bleached tees yesterday. I'm pretty disappointed. I was hoping the bleached area would be much lighter. Any tips? Should I give it another bleach soaking?

dilute your bleach more

? wouldn't that make the bleached area even darker?

>>8419158
The are very few things more pathetic than making your shoes look used without actually using them. At least I hope you are not one the guys making fun of prewashed denim then.
>>
>>8424380
p-p-please respond (>>8427491)
>>
>>8432423
if you wnat the pic then you are going to have to dye the rest of the shirt white. bleach will NEVER come out as white. a white at most.they probably ombry beached it then dyed the rest with white
yours still look good tho
>>
>>8432311
>>8432318

My understanding is that black tees aren't made using white fabric, but orange or yellow. I've done similar bleach dips on black tees and I get similar colors. You could try getting white tees and dying them darker if you want more contrast.

Basically the material with the dazzle camo-esque print is actually from an old ski jacket i saw on ebay a while ago which i kopped for a few quid. Cut it up and stitched it on to a few pieces here and there

>>8434753
gotcha. dammit ha.

this looks like Swedish m90 camo pattern, a little hard to find outside of swedish auction sites. also it's in grey. wtf you got lucky. nice stuff

lel no, it just looks like you walked in dirty pond water and it stained your kicks

you're also a fuccboi for artificially creating a worn-in look, that's like buying pre-faded jeans
>>
Can I make alternations to my clothes using thread and needle or do I need a sewing machine?
>>
>>8439102
technically you can, but it will take a fuckload of time to finish a seam. you're better off with a sewing machine if you plan to do several adjustments.
>>
>>8419262
darker areas appeared like tide marks. Kinda like how salty water drying on cloth makes more pronounced discoloration near the edges.
>>
>>8439159
What about stich quality? Can a skilled tailor make stiches comparable to those made by a sewing machine? Sewing machinge stiches just always seemed stronger to me for some reason.
>>
>>8419247
If you want an even shade of brown let the tea seep for a long time(6 hours on a low temperature) and use about 7-10 teabags(black tea)

Do you actually like brew the tea then dip them?
>>
>>8437015
well, i´ve tailored all my new pants, a knitwear jumper and made a vest for my little sister

i copped a XXL size black shirt to make it Tricky Ricky style by just tapering it, also i bought 2m of fabric to make a coat out of it, ofc it wont be fully functional because it would be just the base of a coat
>>
>>8440067
Not op but that's what I would do. Makes the color more rich for sure.
>>
>>8434264
>>8434264
Thanks for the tip! I'm going to look into getting some black dye for white tee dipping. Will post when I do. I'm really not a fan of orange, it doesn't look good with the rest of my palette complexion and it looks bad with my skin tone.

>Anything interesting I can do with the orange section? Otherwise I will just stick them in my cupboard and never look at them again.
