How to Create a Pattern on Jeanscomments (1) February 14th, 2014
2 Create a design. Apply the discharge paste generously using a foam applicator to dab it through a stencil or onto a stamp to transfer a design onto the denim; paint discharge paste freehand onto the fabric with a paintbrush; or apply it using a squeeze bottle with an applicator tip.
3 Dry the design. Let the discharge paste dry completely on the fabric to avoid smearing the design; this may take up to eight hours. Keep the cardboard pieces in place until the design is dry. For more complex color development, see "Color Combinations and Development" on the previous page.
4 Create a print on the opposite side of the jeans, if desired. The first side must be completely dry.
