just finished painting my monochrome converse with black gesso. it's still a little wet;)
the were originally black converse but I painted them with white gesso and realized I have no light colored clothes so I sprayed them down with plastidip and it looked like shit so I painted it with black gesso.

OP how long did you let the gesso dry for? I just painted some knockoff vans with white gesso + acrylic thinning medium a few hours ago, and they feel really rubbery

might sand/peel off and start over

maybe this only applies to hobby paint, but after you paint something, and it looks dry, you need to let it sit and cure so that the paint is more durable. Handling it during this process will only weaken the hold that the paint has.
>>
>>9636540
India ink is water soluble. Find out what material the shirt is made of and a quick google search will let you know what the best dye is.

>>
>>9636933
I apologize for a bland post, but I'm adding 3M safety tread to the sole of my shoes.

>if you can afford expensive shoes, you can buy another pair

Yes, I can and I (clearly) did. I dropped off my worn pair to my cobbler to see if he can fix the heel drag and topy/Vibram the entire sole. Like those folks who get their Ricks resoled, I want to do the same with my low tops--well, most of my shoes really.

I feel sad having to throw away a nicely beat pair of shoes due to heel drag so I wanted to preserve the sole while still beating them up.


>>9636936
They're the low tops, but they're still tight.
>>
>>9636991
Wait so you're adding skateboard-deck like griptape to the bottom of SLP highs?
Fuck man
>>
>>9637004
Something similar to that; this is tread you add on stairs. The tape used on skateboard decks is abrasive. This has a hard rubber texture so wooden floors don't fret. :)
>>
>>9637016
aren't you doing it a bit too close to the edge of the shoe? it will be seen while youre wearing them
>>
>>9635691
hey anon, OP here.
plastidip was really bad in my experience other than blacking out my car emblem.
the plastidip didn't adhere too well to the shoes and it was very shiny and bumpy and disgusting looking.
within the same day of dipping them, my left shoe already had a tear on the plastidip and the shoelaces rubbed off the dip as well.
my shoes looked really gross though I can't even get over that part
>>
>>9636925
nice I plan on gluing a black piece of cloth on the bottom of my shoe too.
how's yours feel when you slide around with it? I'm worried about it tearing though in the middle of a slide
>>
>>9637062
Unfortunately, yes because the sole on these shoes aren't flat like shoes using the Margom sole; e.g. Balenciaga, Common Projects, Kris Van Assche).

I just realized I misinterpreted your question. My apologies. Yes, there's a good chance someone may notice something odd about the sole, but my goal is produce as little wear as possible. So let's say you're walking without the thought of your soles protected. The probability of heel strike will increase because you didn't account for the additional area covered. My friends say I'm OCD, but I just like things to things a certain way.

At any rate, if someone notices something odd and mentions it to me, I'll explain why. I'm usually walking so it's kind of difficult to catch, but what they think is not any of my concern.

>>9637105
I'm not sure if you're poking fun at me, but I can't slide.

WIP of removing the logo from a freebie US Army duffel I acquired somehow.
>>
Completely new to DIY clothes but I wanted to try something so I guess this is a good place to test the waters.

Is cutting some half ovals out of an old flecktarn parka and sewing them onto a black tee going to work? Is there are sort of specific materials I need to use? Do I need to do anything to protect it after? etc. just some general advice for a complete amateur please, or hell am I just over-thinking?
>>
>>9639251
that sounds really weird anon. I can't imagine what this would look like.
all you'd have to do is make a clean cut out of the flecktarn then sew it on securely. possibly super glue the back of the flecktarn piece before sewing it on too so it is ultra secure.
>>
>>9639251
>>9639341
there exists some sort of iron on stuff too, think that would work better than super glue.
looked into it, its called Heat n Bond, probably goes by other names too.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmDvjE14tek
still, dont forget to sew the edges.

oh don't worry I'm almost certain it won't be that wearable, I'm just setting out to see if DIY is something I want to get into, cheers for the advice
>>9639426
thanks I'll look into it

also when you say 'sew the edges' do you mean simply sew around the edge of whatever piece of fabric I attach to the tee, or do you mean the edges of the cutout material need to be folded back onto itself and sewn shut? sorry if it's a dumb question but I'm a bit clueless tbh

Guy that wanted to do scab jeans here, is this punk enough?

Cool idea with the stitching but it's executed poorly, why did you stitch a box around the rip? Looks weird.
>>
>>9644790
I admittedly didn't use my full effort in an effort for some kind of aesthetic.
The box is a piece of fabric underneath the whole thing to keep the rip together. I could probably take the bottom part of the box out but I don't think it'll hold together well enough
>>
>>9644798
Like the stitching is really cool, now I know the aesthetic is irratic and unpredictable but if it was just a little bit more uniform it'd look like a bit less of a mess. Not the good kind of mess. More like you took a sewing machine and started putting thread everywhere if you get what I'm saying.
>>
>>9644819
word i understand what your'e saying.. maybe if i put more patching with black thread over the existing white thread?
>>
>>9644831
Yeah that sounds like it'll turn out cool, good luck friend.
>>
>>9644831
just use a seam ripper to get the white stitches out and redo them.

thanks guys
>>
>>9643056
looks dumb to me because you did it on the outside of the jeans, i know thats how crust jeans often work but honestly if you ripped them then patched a lot of the inside i think it'd look better
>>

Way cooler meng

>>9643056
Too clean. The jeans underneath actually need to be wrecked for this to work

Should I bother repairing this bag? There's some mold stains and pen marks. It's also pretty thin.
>>
>>9645214

>>
>>9645221
Okay, thanks!
>>
>>9645232

I know. I just didn't want to spend the time to do all that. It was just a quick experiment
>>

I am scab jeans guy from last thread. Is guy who worked at Salvation Army here?
>>
>>9645257
Yeah it's pretty bad. I'm just too attached to this bag and needed an outside opinion.
>>

I wanna print some clean graphics on one of these. I have no idea how to though because of the material. How do I go about this?

Has anyone had any experience with gore-tex?
I'm thinking about making a little rain cloak thing out of it. Where can I cop some?

Do you even own a gun, bullet bill?

i get the impression your junk smells like dust
>>
The only people who should wear crust-pants are vagabond gutter-punks. You are completely inauthentic.
>>
>>9640334
Did it get stiff/fragile or anything?
>>
>>9641747
shoulda bought a taobao fake or something mane
>>
>>9643056
Looks cool, but it would look better if the jeans were really, really distressed.
>>
>>9641747
You're the biggest poseur of all time. You faked fake shoes. That is so sad.

>Wow are you an artist?
>n-no just a fashion victim

You can't even cop out and say it's to flex your billfold. You'll have to explain that you made fake designer shoes that are poseur shoes in the first place. You should be beaten with canvases and easels for being such a phoney

You're the guy that works at Salvation Army

these are some jeans i put together. wanted some opinions on what i should do next to them.

someone mentioned bleach before but has anyone had any experience with dye? im not sure.

i could also put some rips into them
>>
>>9641922

yup about 5 cups in a plastic bucket. i put a large rock on it to keep it submerged. it soaked for maybe 2 hours tops, i rotated it twice to get even coverage. a little more color came out in the wash, fyi. that photo is post wash.

>>9647602

It was actually a bit stiff before, it is damaging to the fibers to bleach in general but it softened it up nicely. It did fray the stressed areas a bit more.
>>
>>9641966

I debadged the tongue logo, bleached them and then sprayed them with textured cream Rustoleum. Also they are denim uppers so doing it on canvas would yield different results, I would assume.

Didn't get a chance to finish my candle drip black canvas yet, maybe I will tonight, otherwise it will have to be next week as I am going to Florida for a long weekend.
>>
>>9648364
Theylook good as they are imo. I can't see rips or bleaching improving them
>>
>>9640319
>>9640334
It looked cooler before.
>>
>>9648436

The after photo doesn't do it justice really, there are light blue patches and spots that make it not look so plain, I'm really happy with it. It wasn't a bad wash before hand but that color didn't really fit with my wardrobe at all. My vintage auto is white, too.

id slim them down so theyre tighter on the leg, and fray the shit outta where the different parts meet and have that distressed julius esq look pair of of jeans, this is what im planning on doing so i can get mad stacks like you and julius
>>
>>9643056
Easy way to distress them is to ball them up and scrub on concrete. It won't put actual rips in them, but they will look mad distressed quick
>>
>>9638628
what fit type? may have to just copy you, I'm sorry.
