DIY faux-waxed denim

Here is our version of the waxed pant trend: the faux-waxed coated denim! You can also use the traditional wax technique (wax + hair dryer) but we felt like trying something new! Hope you like it! :)

Material needed:

Acrylic Paint

Gloss varnish

Foam Brush

Pants from American Apparel

      You can just wash them normally as you would wash some denim pants. The varnish has for purpose to hold the acrylic paint in the fabric!
