Denimolition - with Fiber Etch® Fiber Remover

Create "Vandalized Denim", fashion's newest cutting-edge trend using Fiber Etch Fiber Remover, Denimolition-style.

Denimolition is a quirky and colorful mix of retro imagery and headlines paired with original art and contemporary elements, vandalized with broad graffiti brush strokes, wine spills, tiny holes, abraded swaths, and finger smudges. It's a fun way to use Fiber Etch to express your own unique style on a pair of denim jeans, a jacket, or a t-shirt.

All You Do Is

  • Apply tiny dots of Fiber Etch gel and allow to penetrate into the denim.
  • Fold denim garment, time for 20 minutes, and place on a piece of aluminum foil into a 225 degree oven.
  • Remove from oven and place in washer to reveal the Denimolition results.
  • Tiny dots will make small holes. If larger, threadbare areas are desired, apply Fiber Etch gel in a series of very fine, horizontal lines spaced 1/2" or so apart.

Many canvas-type shoes can also be etched to reveal the shoes' lining. Apply Fiber Etch gel and allow to absorb into the canvas fabric. Place in 225 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and place under faucet, vigorously brushing treated areas with a fingernail brush to reveal etched areas.

Denimolitionize a cotton/poly t-shirt with graffiti, or personalize with your name (oven setting: 200 degrees for 15 minutes). When washed, etched areas appear magically.

To Fray or Not to Fray

For more fray, wash on heavy duty cycle and place in tumble dryer. For less fray, use smaller holes. Do not mix Fiber Etch with bleach or any other chemicals.
