Close Up - Whitewash
Painted or sprayed with white pigment onto dark denims. Haphazard brush marks can be abstract or representational.
Apply thickly using quick strokes for the background and more precise for the motifs.
Coat the whole of the denim piece with white pigment; rub off excess with a cloth and score into the heaviest coated areas with a sharp edged implement. Wait to dry before adding another layer or wearing.
Easy to do yourself by hand - don't overdo the pigment painted areas otherwise the garment will become too stiff.
Very lightly coated or brushed over the surface to give the appearance of white stains and raindrops.
Abstract and haphazard splashing and spraying above evolves to hand stencilled flowers on these Abercrombie short ankle flares below. Right on trend.
