—I wasn't too keen on the idea in the beginning. It's been a long while since I've taught a crafts class, but my nervous energy developed into a much calmer and comfortable feeling in the end.
Fortunately the class went very well, as the artful teenager's attention seemed to be held by the subject nicely. Afterward, I showed my temporary pupils a few other dyeing examples including these jeans (above) that I had finished. "I want those," yelled one young girl. I was quite surprised because though I loved them, a couple of my friend's asked if I was going to wear them out! Of course, I was! I will forgive those two people, as fashion is not their focal point in life. (Joking!)
Aside from the comical relief that I apparently provided for a couple of folks, I was very happy for the outcome of my denim stone-wash project.
How to Get the Camouflage:
All that was needed was coffee, bleach, water, and optional bands. I used charcoal not black old denim jeans. First I soaked the denim with coffee, then sporadically spraying bleach on the front and back. Let them rinse in the washing machine. After it finished spinning, I then poured a large amount of coffee in random motion preferably in a few of the bleached areas (this creates a layering, marbled effect). Be mindful of the crotch and bum areas. Wait approx. 30 min.
