DIY Jackson Pollock Apparel

Step 1:  Procure a brightly colored item of clothing.  A yellow Laker's jersey will do nicely.

Step 2:  Procure a handful of crayons.  I like to use Crayola originals for optimal results.

Step 3:  Throw both the clothing and the crayons into the washer and run at hottest setting*.  This is an important step to bring out the full intensity of the art.

Step 4:  Transfer from washer to dryer.  Again, run at hottest setting, to seal-in the color.

Step 5:  Remove from dryer immediately.


*Helpful Hint:  the same effect could be achieved by first placing crayons in the pocket of a size 7 pair of skinny jeans.

**Results may vary.

I'm going to file this one under "Things I'm Learning".  Because one day I will learn to check the pockets.
