taija hasnt posted anything yet because she's stupid.

Title says it all.
I should be doing theatre homework again.
I have to do a journal entry about Dog Sees God. Great play. But anyways.

I have something to post about nao. NAO LISTEN HERE. I will tell you how to bleach tie-dye jeans, as it was my weekend activity recently.
You might want to experiment with different scraps of fabric and methods before you go on to bleaching the all-important article of clothing that you wish to alter and eventually wear.
Also I dont recommend black jeans. That's what I used and they look kinda cow-like so I have to lighten them up more still. Will do a post about that to see how it gooooes.
But anyways:


You need to put rubber bands ALL OVER your jeans. Find different ways to scrunch them and twist them and then completley engulf them in rubber bands. The rubber bands should be tight and hold really well. A few should break. In the end, you should have a solid mass of denim that looks like it's growing tumors. It will look like some sort of root. Like ginseng.

So that's what it should look like. OKEI???

Naaao you need to take your ginseng jeans and dunk them in a small bucket of straght bleach. You won't need TOO much. Just pour a little in and then add more as needed. Let them sit for like 10 minutes and when you come back the color will have drastically changed. Again, add more bleach as needed.
Once you're happy with what you've got, undo the rubber bands and unfold the jeans! If you've scrunched them right, you can get some really cool effects.

Okay. Okay. Okay. Rinse out your jeans in the sink and then put them in the laundry. WASHWASHWASH. Then dry them. DRYDRYDRY. Then they're awesome.


Again, if they end up looking too cow-like, you should mix a tiny bit of bleach and a LOT of water and just dunk the jeans in and let them lighten up a bit. Rinse and repeat. (Haha, haha, it works nao it works!)


Oh and a side note: I recently discovered Dan Deacon and I can't stop listening to Crystal Cat. Fuck.
