I painted these jeans a couple of years ago, just thought I'd share them with you guys.

Also, a friend of mine is making a website for me so I can sell stuff to help me pay my tution. Any advice (pricing/etc) in that regard would be helpfu, plus any advice from you craftsters would be great!

Wow, those are awesome! What did you use to paint them? or is it a print?

Thank you Smiley

First I sketched the designs with light chalk. Then I just used fabric paint by squirting it out of the tube and using a brush to apply it.

It's held up in the wash, by the way, in case you guys were wondering.

Those are gorgeous!!!  Shocked  

I've been wanting to redecorate some jeans but hadn't really fallen in love with any techniques until now! I am SO making these!!!

where did you get the designs from??? or did you free hand them??? either way they are gorgeous! and BTW something like that in a high-scale boutique in NY would go for anywhere between $70-200! I've seen it happen! WAY TO GO!!!

those are some absolutly fantastic jeans!!! They look quite designer-ish so I would say I would pay about.....$90.00 american....they look awesome!

It takes a lot of money to look this cheap.

OMG - those are the most beautiful jeans!  I'm going to have to try it.  

Are there rhinestones in the pattern too?  From the photos, it looks like there's something shiney.

I was just working with Tulip Demension paints last night, I think that would be perfect for this project.  (Wouldn't it?).
