After bleaching you can leave it this way as the jacket is or dye it again a different color or add more wax to a pattern and dye again or a combination of the two. Where there is sufficient wax they dye will not penetrate as well.
And that is approximately how I made my jean jacket in circa 1987. I wore it all around campus and have not seen anything even close to it in 23 years. I would not tell anyone how I made it. Some people in bars wanted to fight me because I would not tell them, because I was Mr. Cool and didn’t want to share my secret.
I have added a link to a small store for products relavent to this project.
