Custom Bleached Hoodies

Post by Saeteryn » January 27th, 2015, 12:38 pm

Hola,

So I made these hoodies by making stencils inphotopshop, and then cutting them out in duck tape. Some bleach and a wash or two later, these are the finished products. The first is a TF2 Scout theme, and the second is a District 13 Hunger Games hoodie.

I have a couple more plans for projects like these, but havent had the motivation/time to actually get to them. Each one takes roughly 6-8 hours if you take into account the time needed to make and cut out the stencils, transfer them to duck tape, bleach the hoodie, and then wash it.

Very cool!

I might have to try this on a rare occasion that I have enough free time! Great work! (I agree with Oxy, not just on the organic design, but the fact that you took Photoshop work into the real world this way!)

Thanks for all the compliments :D

There is actually a decent sized community dedicated to bleaching clothes, r/bleachshirts comes to mind. I think they have some decent resources for people that wanna get started.

That is amazing! Maybe you should try selling some plain ones out of your garage?

Also, OS X hoodies. Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought that.

8 hours is too much time to make any meaningful profit, and In my experience making them for friends, a lot of times what people want done cannot be accomplished exactly the way they envision it, so they want an even lower price. 6 hours at work yields triple the $$$$ I have ever gotten form selling one of these :P

These are really cool! I would've never thought that bleaching clothes would yield such patterns on the clothing. The masking you do with the ducttape surprises me that it masks off the bleach coloring. I'm guessing none of the bleach ends up on the inside sopping up to wear the ducttape covers.
