Within our course we are introduced to breaking down and distressing garments to create weathered looks. During the class I created this distressed shirt inspired by the coast. I utilised materials such as puff binder, spray paint, dnya flow and a heat gun to alter the texture of the garment.

The shirt during class.

I applied mud along the collar and then applied puff binder, activating it with a heat gun to create texture along the collar to recreate mould.

Along one sleeve I torn of the end and added dust, mud and spray painted the fabric.

Along the other shoulder I used spray paint, dnya flow and dust to create depth.

Underneath the puff binder on the front of the collar I used acrylic paint to contrast against the white of the binder.

Along the back of the collar I kept the puff binder white and applied it with a sponge to create variety.

Along the back I used spray paint and attempted to create creases by scrunching the shirt.

Along the front I used mud, ink, acrylic paint but applied it with sponges and my fingers to make it appear more natural.

Along the buttons I used mud and along one side of the hem I combined methylated spirit and dnya flow to dull the surface.

Distressed Shirt

Whilst for most of the shirt I used a sponge and a paint brush, I tried to recreate mud splatters along the sleeves by flicking the brush.

On the torn sleeve hem, I rolled it up and dipped it into a cup of water diluted with dyna flow.

On the side of the shirt I tried to re-create a sweat stain using water and mud, diluting it heavily so it would spread across the fabric.
