Instructions: Cover work surface thoroughly. Wear protective clothing. Slide cardboard (see step 1 and 2) or layers of newspaper into the jeans. Pour small amounts of paints onto the palette. Pick up small amounts of paint on the brush and dab spots on the jeans or make long brush strokes, horizontally and vertically.
