If you've followed me or been in the same online hangouts as I have during lockdown, you'll know and probably have seen pictures of the jacket I've been working on since the start of May. I saw a regular store here had this jacket earlier this year, and waited for it to come on sale before I snagged it. I really wanted to try to paint, something I have never done before. I'll just show you the finished product at once, then you can see the before and during!
Sadgoth, Obscura Undead and Love Goth Hate Racism, all gotten during WGT last year.
Lip Service pin also free when I ordered from them (I'll post a clothing haul soon).
Spontis 2019 and 2020 buttons (see my last post for this year's Spontis magazine issue!)
Oh, and spikes from Ebay (took like 2 months to arrive). The leather hole puncher wouldn't cut through, so I seriously poked and poked with a leather needle until I could get the screws through.
I used a ruler and chalk, before doing 2-3 coats of acrylic paint, later coated with Modpodge.
But I also did a bunch of the designs completely freehand.
Since June I have been wearing the jacket, and noticed after a couple of months that the paint started to crack. So I got some outdoor Modpodge to seal it. I fixed up some parts, but kept some of the cracks.
