How To Paint Jean Jackets Using Chalk Mineral Paint

Hey everyone, It’s Tracey from Traceys Fancy! Painted denim jackets are a new thing for me!  After years of painting denim overalls, I’ve transitioned to the jackets by request. I actually prefer the painted denim jackets as the art seems easier to feature as the main focus on the back panel. Let’s get started, get your jacket/jeans/overalls to practice on!

How To:

Step 1:

First, lay the fabric out flat. Trace over your design in a permanent marker, then spray the fabric lightly with water before painting.

Step 2:

Second, begin painting with thin layers, keep the denim slightly wet with a mister bottle. If preferred, outline the finished painting with a paint pen.

Step 3:

Third, seal with Easy Peasy Spray Wax. Once dry, cover with a damp washcloth and iron to heat set paint pen.

Step 4:

Lastly, do not wash for 30 days. After 30 days, wash in cold water on a gentle cycle and hang dry.
