Jack Frost Hoodie Details - Download for Best View by xHee-Heex Jack Frost Hoodie Details - Download for Best View by xHee-Heex
A few people have asked in messages to see some closer shots of the painting on my hoodie, so I just compiled some of my favorite shots! I hope it can help somewhat- I followed no particular pattern, just made lots of small strokes and lines and thought a lot about cracked ice! Using many different colors helps, too! It gives the finished look a lot more depth, especially from a distance.


-The hoodie (which began as an XXL hoodie, was dyed, and then deconstructed and resewn together with dual seamlines stitched into the front and back and a new front pocket) is painted with blue fabric paints, a fabric pen, brushed on 3D glitter paint, and touches of white acrylic paint that were brushed and patted on for the frost effects.

Can I ask? What size brush did you use? Probably really small I imagine. &Did you use multiple colours for the blue, or the frost, or both? I'm kind of confused. :o
Also, I'm debating painting on a frost effect on a scarf I'm knitting for a friend who also cosplays Jack Frost, & looks a lot like him to begin with! Can I ask your opinion on the paint? Is it ok to use regular white acrylic on the scarf if it's (obviously) going to be worn outside in the snow, since it will get wet? I still don't know if my thoughts are final on adding the effect, but if I decide to, I want to be sure because it can't be undone.
Thanks for reading, & if ou get back to me on the paint thing, thanks! :)

Oh man... uh, I'm pretty sure I used the smallest brushes I could find. I honestly can't recall exactly what colors were used. But there were multiple blues, all leading up to white, and a few different glitter paints as well. It's really just about what combinations YOU like! :3 And for a scarf, you'll want to use fabric paint, which is flexible.

I'm curious, do you remember the dye(s) you used for your hoodie? It's a beautiful color!

I don't, I'm sorry! But it was a dusky, cobalty sort of blue that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
