Here are some of my more frequently asked questions and my answers!!
What type of paint do you use on your jackets?
I use Winsor & Newton acrylic paints that I mix with Golden GAC 900 fabric medium which I set with heat!
2. Are your jackets safe to wash?
Yes! The paint should be okay but I recommend you keep it dry as much as possible (avoid wearing them in the rain!) and only hand wash/spot washing when absolutely necessary to protect the art! The better care you take of the painted items, the more you can prevent the inevitable fading and/or cracking, including keeping the designs flat/without creases!
3. Where do you get your jackets from?
I get all my jackets second hand and up-cycle them!! The process of making denim is really bad for the environment and I always try to do my bit so by getting second hand jackets, not only am I preventing the damage from new denim but I am also helping to reduce waste from the pre-loved (but un-wanted) jackets!!! I, of course, wash all the jackets before I start painting them!
4. How much do your jackets cost?
The cost depends on where you are from because of shipping so I recommend you check out my shop to see how much it would cost for you!
5. What sizes do you offer?
As I get my jackets second hand, I can get whatever size, or colour, jacket that you want!
6. Can you paint one of my own jackets?
Of course!! You'll have to ship it to me but other than that the process will be similar!! I'll paint a/some draft/s for you so you're happy with the design before you ship it to me! This will obviously make the total price you pay to me less too!
7. Can you paint XYZ's song/logo/face on a product for me?
Unfortunately, I cannot sell jackets with copyrighted content on as I really would prefer not to be su£d! I can paint things that are INSPIRED by other things and some lyrics are okay if they are a more general, not trademarked/copyrighted short phrase!
8. How can I order?
Send me a message!! Either on Instagram, my website or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) whichever is best for you and where you'll be more likely to keep up with the conversation! We'll discuss what you want, I'll paint you a draft, when you're happy with the design you'll buy my custom jacket listing and then I'll paint the jacket for you!
Now you're ready to express yourself in a unique way!!
