I don't know if this counts as "reconstruction" or whatever, but what the hell. Can anyone post links on how to destroy jeans, or give me a step-by-step? the last jeans i did went totally haywire, & i can't figure out what went wrong. I'd like them to have a kind of dark wash, with thigh fades & whiskers & whatnot. Ok, go.

i like to destroy/distress jeans too!
what i usually do is:

cut of a little bit of the bottom edge of the leg, put duct tape on the front and the inside then press it doesn hard and RIP RIP RIP really hard then use a pumice stone and rub back and forth along it

bleaching always looks good........just dip like a plastic fork in the container and flick it usually looks the best.

writing on them (make sure it's sharpie because anything else washes out probably)

sanding with an electric sander

splattering with paint



i am not sure about the dark wash..............i usually just use hammy arounds or jeans that r too small.
my friend and i used one of her mom's long denim skirts and made it into a mini skirt and we made kind of whiskers using the pumice stone i had and like wiped it across fast

maybe that helps.....

Paint on them with bleach. Or run a cheese shredder along them (I saw a guy do it on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy), maybe even sandpaper?
