As I mentioned in the Splatter Paint Oxford DIY, I have been seriously scanning my closet for my next splatter victim. I’ve had my eye on this white blazer tucked back in the depths of my “archives” (I like to think of my clothes as art) and haven’t been able to stop imagining how deluxe it would look with a splash of black. Remember, there are no limits to this project and the best part of it, you really can’t mess it up! I typically lean towards a high-contrast, graphic look, but when it comes down to it, just think of all the possible color combos! Side note: this is a fabulous party idea to get together with your friends.
Supplies: 2-3 jars of fabric paint, paint brush (foam or flat brush), blazer, and newspaper
Preferably outdoors or in an open, uncluttered space, lay down your newspaper wide enough to cover the area that your paint may hit. Also, it is important to line the inside of your blazer with the newspaper to ensure the paint doesn’t coat the inside of your jacket. Next, lay your blazer down as flat as possible and let the paint fly—Drizzle! Flick! Swirl! Splash! Put as much Jackson Pollack into it as you want and paint the buttons for an added pop! I recommend letting the painted side dry for 24 hours and then repeat the process on the other side. Have fun making beautiful, wearable art!
