As far as I'm concerned, punk is about making waves for the sake of individuality and the overall openness and betterment of society. Yea it might technically come with a specific fashion sect or music genre, but punk and generally alternative people /choose/ to conform to those supposed standards for the group image and then turn around and make it their own. They're also generally the most accepting and kind people I've ever met so...punk is what you want it to be basically.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you a brand new tumblr page. The formidable Fuck Yeah Whatever-You-Want-It-To-Be Jackets.
Someone had asked what “They” use to make patches. I screen print patches myself and know allot of other people that do as well. Any cotton base is good but the QUALITY patches that are real rugged and thick are usually printed on duck cloth canvas.
Hi, Do you know what type of paint is best for painting detailed art, onto leather & for prepping before paint? I've made a few w acrylic & still am in search for a better option. As the acrylic doesn't always hold up that well. Thanks so much!
Leather paint, I guess? But any paint you use will eventually start peeling of, on leather (put taking care of the jacket, with stuff to keep it moisturized ought to help). Aaaand it’s also important that the leather is really clean, with any varnish or other finish removed brfore you start painting. And - most important - a thousand thin paint coats are harder to come off than one thick layer.
So this is my first time studding a leather jacket and the right flap under the zipper is all messed up since I studded the whole right front side. I was thinking about cutting it and sewing it back together. Do you think I should do that or leave it be? Sorry the question is kinda confusing.
I… don’t really get it? wouldn’t it be better to re-stud the whole thing, instead of cutting and sewing?
