10 Ways to test and experiment with denim:
1. Break down to thread form
2. Sew using the threads it was broken down to
3. Cut and chop
4. Rip and tear
6. Use as a pigment
7. Paint on it
8. Sculpt with it
10. Laser cut
Taking it down to the thread it came from.
Cut and Chop.
Rip and Tear.
Make it it to a pigment. This was deconstructed into a dust-like form and mixed with a clear acrylic base.
There was a 1:1 and a 2:1 ratio used to test for better results. The 2:1 ratio provided a more flexible and smoother application.
There will be future tests conducted in using denim as a pigment. Stay tuned.
