How to Create a Pattern on Jeanscomments (15) November 12th, 2016
Color Combinations and Development
There are many options for color combinations when using a discharge paste product such as deColourant and deColourant Plus. For high contrast, try dark-colored denim and plain discharge paste or pastel deColourant Plus, or light-wash denim and neon- or primary-colored deColourant Plus. For a subtler effect, try dark-wash denim and primary- or metallic-colored deColourant Plus, or light-wash denim and metallic deColourant Plus.
For more dramatic color removal on denim, apply the discharge paste, allow it to dry, heatset the design, then wash the jeans and reapply more deColourant over the first application. You can also apply deColourant Plus colors over a design created using plain discharge paste to build up layers of color removal and replacement.
Make several test samples on scrap denim (in the same color as your garment) to determine which color combination you like and how many applications are necessary for a desired effect.
