DIY» Aztec print bleached shorts

Ello readers

I've been busy trying to think of  content to go with an upcoming article ( but that's all top secret now shh). I know I promised a similar next to something cut out bralet as seen on the petite nasty gal models, coming regularly on my news feed. You are not getting a how to do a cut out corset like bralet unfortunately (because it is still in the make shift process of nearly there)*fingers crossed* Instead I'll be going through the steps I used to achieve my summer Aztec print bleached shorts.
* sorry readers I was to preoccupied to think to record this *silly me.

Original I brought a high waisted dark denim, jean short number a while back (precisely four years ago) and decided that there was nothing unique about them, in short they lacked a certain jazz. First of all I had to  bleach the bottom of its ends with W5 thick toilet bleach .Then with cold water rinsed the ends to rid them of the powerful toxins. Further on the line I put them in my household washing machine to fray the ends even more, I pictured in my mind a ragged,battered messed about piece of jean short.

With my quite decent artistic skills combined with some creative  fashion no all I stenciled out a common Aztec print design (from Google images) and transferred it on to the bleached section if the shorts. This,was done using a ballpoint thick bold pen (that was the darkest shade of navy) and then using black acrylic paint filled out the,rest of the unshaded patterns. Admittedly I got a smudge carried away and used the rest of my rainbow acrylics to make a intergalactic print design above the top ( through dipping the paints in a unused sponge and just going along the line). It was fairly simple to do, so if you want to attempt this or most likely fancy a pair of your own personalized shorts,

Good luck .
Ps I may be selling some of these on my ebaystore *keep your eyes peeled*
