Ripped Denim Tutorial

Over the weekend we had a bit of a creative buzz which took us all the way back to our high school & college days! Back then we used to distress and rip our own jeans – my brother and I even had a little side hustle doing it for other people! It’s been a few years but the same techniques still worked. Watch the clips below to see how to get started on a basic ripped jean look!

TOOLS

 

MARK WHERE YOU WANT TO RIP

 

CUT OUT MAJOR HOLES & SLITS

 

PLACE A MAGAZINE UNDER JEANS WHERE YOU WANT TO CUT. THIS PROTECTS THE BACKSIDE OF YOUR JEANS & YOUR TABLE!

 

USE TWEEZERS TO ADD FRAYED DETAIL. PULL THE DENIM & LEAVE THE ELASTIC BEHIND.

 

ADD DETAIL TO POCKET EDGES USING A RAZOR & TWEEZERS.

FOR A WASHED OUT DENIM LOOK, RUB YOUR JEANS WITH SAND PAPER OR EVEN A PIECE OF CHALK ROCK UNTIL THE FIBERS START TO WEAR DOWN.

THE MORE YOU WEAR & WASH YOUR JEANS THE MORE CHARACTER THEY WILL DEVELOP!
