DIY Bleach Design on Denim

I recently posted a pair of  DIY bleached shorts with that DIY Kimono that kicked my butt. I had a lot of people ask me about those shorts, so I decided to make a video tutorial to show you how easy it is. While I am not a master at filming I did my best and uploaded that tutorial yesterday. I also gave all the little tips on bleaching and inspiration.  

  
I bought a inexpensive denim jacket  for this project. I wanted to add an elephant in my bleach design, so I Googled elephant clip-art. I traced the elephant with bleach on the back of my jacket and just added an abstract design all around the elephant. The jacket is finished and  I am very happy with the outcome.

**When bleaching denim please use it in a well ventilated area! Make sure you wash your garment a few times before wearing, this will stop the bleaching process.  I did not wash this jacket because it would not be touching any skin and I didn't think it was necessary. There are additives out there that you can use in your wash but I've never had any issues just washing it in my regular laundry detergent.  
Happy DIY bleaching!

  11. OhmyGosh your work is AWESOME AND AMAZING. I just saw your artwork on line. That denim jacket is absolutely incredible. You should enter it into some competitions. I’m going to start out small like a tee shirt or like you mentioned a few throw pillows. THANK YOU FOR THE IDEAS and the video.
