HAND PAINTED CLOTHING - FINISHED....I THINK...



Well at top is the back of the finished pants and below that is the front. Wow, this was almost as much work as a painting. I love how they turned out and the color of course is bolder in person. (Still not too good with a camera.)
I mixed the acrylic paint with a fabric medium as per instructions and painstakingly applied it to the denim praying that it would hold up. However, I want to let them sit for a bit (I always do that with my artwork to let it cure and because I am always going back to touch up something I missed.) Then I will "heat set" it and then...the big test....the laundering. For the most part all the researching I did online suggests washing inside out in cold water and not putting in dryer, at least the majority of the articles did.
So stay tuned and in a few days I will let you know how they hold up. Now, how am I going to keep myself from painting all the rest of the clothes until after the final test. Hmmmm....wish me luck.
You know you're an artist when you can't find a nice outfit to wear because everything has paint smears on it.

Great Job! I think these are cute as all get out. I really like that recycled web site too...I use recycled materials all the time in my work and I love it!

It is fun isn't it Heather to create something from an item that was headed for landfill? Something so rewarding and satisfying about it.
