It is no secret that I enjoy creating Art with  discarded Jeans pant.  If and when I collect a few Jeans pant, I immediately create art with it. It is easily accessible and durable and very easy to manipulate and use for any creative purpose no matter the idea. Working with old denim pants for me, is a way of giving life back to a material that is so versatile yet resilient. And all you need is  1. Old pair of Jeans 2.Glue(A lot of glue) 3.A  mold 4. Acrylic Paint Wet the denim fabric,cut it and saturate it with glue and mold it around the object you intend to enhance or recreate, for me is bottles or pots. I try to use discarded objects as the moulds for this denim Art. Leave it to dry for as long as it dries out stiff,strong and well formed. Then apply paint on it.  *Note: The mold which is the pot, remains inside! because the jean pants is glued to it.  Do you know that a good pair of Jeans is like a trusted friend?, e
