D I Y / Cracked Denim + Video

My black jeans had a make over yesterday, they now look like they have been dipped in white concrete. I love the bursted and imperfect surface of the denim. They have become a delicate piece of clothing that will only get better with time. Flakes of paint will fall off on places where the fabric folds and a white wash will be left on the denim. Stains can be easily brushed off the dusty surface.

What you will need to make a pair of your own is some old jeans, a brush and acrylic paint. All you have to do is apply a thick layer of paint on the denim. After an hour or two your jeans should be dry and stiff. Now you can literally break them in. The paint will burst and the first half hour you´ll be losing a lot of paint flakes and dust. (A walk outside is recomended!) But after giving them a chance to shape to your body you can wear them without leaving a dust trail. I can't wait to incorporate these into a few outfits!

Seems like a mess every time you would wear them.
And how practical are these jeans when it comes time to do the laundry?
I don't know about this. But nice try, they look pretty

Yep you guys are right, They can´t be washed. But my leather pants from COS can´t either, so i´ll have to treat them with the same delicacy. After ´breaking` into them they stop losing paint flakes :)

A La Mode said...

This is such an awesome idea. I love the end result!

Nusardel said...

I love how the little hints of black that are still remaining around the fly and inner pockets. The result is very Margiela, no? I'm definitely considering doing this with my black pair, once I've got a new pair to replace them, that is. I don't think I can live without black jeans. x

ediot said...

Alice /// VESTIGIAL WINGS said...

I love this, it reminds me of those silver painted jeans at topshop. I wonder if you can wash it in the washing machine at all, or will the paint continue to fall off forever?

Yth said...

I'd never thought white jeans could be so edgy and renewing. I'm also loving the neon nails, especially in combination with your hair :)

NONA LIMMEN said...

I'll definitely try this myself on some old jeans.

Geweldig idee! x

I just love the way you talk about clothing. It seems like you truly care about every garment, and you are not wasteful. I definitely can relate.

Incognito said...

Nice idea ! I have some old slim that I transformed into shorts last I guess painting them could also be a good idea ! Thanks for the inspiration !

I love your idea! It looks wonderful. I haven't seen such jeans before. ;)

Viviana said...

GENIUS!

Melissa said...

I made this thing on a bag, seriously stunning!!

just angelina said...

this is a really good idea!
I want to try it using a black acrylic paint ona white denim.

Stephanie / FAIIINT said...

These look awesome! If you want to be able to wash them though, give them a coat of resin, they will have a glossy finish instead of matte, but will still crack & will be at least hand washable!

Emy said...

I love it!! Such a simple idea - those are usually the brilliant ones:) I think I'll try this on a dark pair of jeans as well :) Thanks for sharing!

hey, does anyone knows if can i wash it?

EveryLivingCreatureDiesAlone said...

What paint did you use?
ike, wall paint, or acrylic..?

Anonymous said...

i tried this, but the paint isnt cracking!

Anonymous said...

Wall paint? Or artistic paints? Matte? Flat? Gloss?
Not a very helpful diy description

LOVE AESTHETICS said...

yes wall paint on an acryllic base, if you've checked out the video you'll see what kind of paint it is. The type that only comes in one variety (no gloss, it is always matte)

Urban Styles said...

This probably explains why generation after generation finds the denim jeans a material of first choice for casual wear.

Roderick Parker said...

Considerably, this post is really the sweetest on this notable topic. I harmonise with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your incoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the phenomenal clarity in your writing.Urban Styles

It's very easy to find out any matter on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this piece of writing at this web site.
