Have you ever thought about making your own Custom Painted Sunflower Jeans? It is easier than you think! The high-waisted hippy boho jeans with frayed bottoms and wider legs in style right now are perfect for painting and embellishing. Why should you paint sunflowers? Sunflowers are perfect for summer and fall, and can be coordinated with the colors of spring and winter as well. Sunflowers are happy, cheerful flowers. You will never feel depressed while wearing these fabulous jeans.
Textile medium is the magic liquid that makes it easy to paint on fabric. It prevents cracking and stiffness on your finished product. It looks opaque, but dries clear. You can use any type of acrylic paint, but artist paints can be purchased for just a few dollars more than craft paints and are much more vibrant and pigmented.
Instructions for Custom Painted Sunflower Jeans
First, insert cardboard inside the pants leg you are painting. It will keep the paint from bleeding through. Next, paint three Black circles with the angle brush for the flower centers. Add a thin layer of Nutmeg Brown.
Use the liner brush to make Nutmeg Brown seed hairs.
Add Nutmeg Brown and Ocre Yellow seed hairs with the liner brush. Paint Yellow petals with the angle brush.
Shade with Orange and highlight with White and the liner brush. Add more Yellow to the petals if the denim underneath makes the petals look Green. Paint your initials in White with the liner brush.
Paint leaves and stems with Green and the angle brush. Highlight with White using the angle and liner brushes.
That’s all there is to it. Wasn’t that easy?
