This is a good project for all different kinds of denim styles and washes, but keep your intended look in mind. I went with a dark-denim, wide-leg jean because I wanted to use lighter paint colors. I also planned on putting the paint toward the sides of the jean, so a wider leg gave me more surface area to play with.
2. SET UP YOUR WORK AREA
Lay out newspaper or another protective covering over your floor. Get latex gloves and a bowl or container that has an opening big enough to fit your hand.
3. GET THE PAINT
I went to Blick by the NYLON offices in NYC and picked up Jacquard Textile paints. One half-ounce bottle of each color will be perfect if you want to re-create my project. If you’re going for a more paint-heavy look, I’d suggest getting two bottles. When choosing colors, it’s really all up to your imagination! I picked hues I knew would match most of what I wear, but neon or metallic paints are fun, too!
