custom t shirt design programsA: Quoted By Chameleon:
"To start off with, there is no answer. There is no measurement or depth
gage for you to go by. There are no standards. No color markers or
changes in the smell of the burning leather. If the alligator skin is done
properly, it should not be even. Much like real alligator skin it should not
compltely symmertical. There are highs and lows in the grain. To use the
coin term "scales" loosely, there should not be in a uniform pattern.
Experiment with it. That could quite possibly be the best info you could get
regarding the croc pattern.
With that said, there are many customs ive seen out there that have a
simple checker board pattern that looks very unauthentic. For that, press
the hot woodburning pen into the leather and drag it in a slow, straight,
steady line. Repeat if necessary. "
custom t shirt design programsA: Mask off anywhere you don't want paint to be. Then there are several
ways to apply the splatter, some drop it from brushes at a high point and let

it at the shoes. Some also blow the paint out of a straw to get the job done.

custom t shirt design programsA: Pure acetone is the strongest
and most effective way to remove
factory finishes for the best results
in customizing. I personally use
cotton balls for larger areas and
cotton q-tips for smaller areas
that are dipped in acetone to
prepare my customs. Apply a
good amount of pressure and
scrub, but not so hard that you
remove the texture of the leather
. Some people believe you must
make the leather turn grey for it
to be prepared, but aslong as
the finish is off, you're good to go.

custom t shirt design programsPantone is a color chart not an actual color. Jordan Brand just select a blue
from the chart to use on the sneaker.
In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone's founder, created an innovative system for
identifying, matching and communicating colors to solve the problems associated
with producing accurate color matches in the graphic arts community. His insight
that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the
innovation of the PANTONE® MATCHING SYSTEM®, a book of standardized color
in fan format.
Pantone has since expanded its color matching system concept to other
color-critical industries, including digital technology, fashion, home, plastics,
architecture and contract interiors, and paint. Today, the PANTONE Name is
known worldwide as the standard language for accurate color communication,
from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer, across a variety of
industries. Pantone continues to develop color communication and inspirational
tools, and aggressively adopts new digital technology to address the color needs
of the creative community everywhere.
