Creal, if I was going to do an air brushed design, I would do: either an empty cross, perhaps with a crown of thorns, or an open cave. Could do the same thing, with the light effect. While angels are nice, I think the "angel" message does not tell the "needful" story.
It's version 1, cheap jacket, proof of concept. Yes you can air brush fabric and even over the zipper as long as you protect the steel part of the zipper from paint. Designs/scenes will be all one of a kind.

The next question... Do you think there is a business model for Spiritual themed air bushed outer wear?

Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸

Might I suggest looking at the Christian apparel shops. The ones who are always looking for “brand ambassadors” to see what’s already been done/get some ideas of what works.

While there may be a growing market for Christ based apparel, I think the market may be pretty much saturated. It would be fine as a hobby, but, I very much doubt that you could even break even. I agree with MB: Take a look to see what is already being done. On FB, I see frequent notifications that this or that Christian apparel business is going out of business.

I looked into the apparel of one of those businesses, LG....did you? One going out of business showed models in extremely short cut off jean shorts and the shirts, with "Christian" logos and sayings on the front, were VERY low cut, very immodest in all ways. Many of the shirts were provocative, sexy in nature and no different from the same type of clothing you'd see that didn't have a "Christian" label...they could very well have said "Juicy" or "Bad Girl" on them.

It made me ashamed in front of God to see such things being sold as honoring Him. I, for one, was very glad they were going out of business.

No, I have not specifically looked at any of those sites. I do see T-shirts advertised on FB. Many are appropriate, and I would wear them, both for the message and the style. I've no doubt that there are plenty of inappropriate messages, claiming to be "Christian" as well as inappropriate design. I expect that there are many companies that offer a "smattering" of Christ honoring apparel, while also offering apparel that appeals to pagans, wiccans, muslims, etc. However, for myself, I do not purchase or wear "Christian" clothing. I would rather that Christ be seen in my action and words than by what I wear.

That's how I have always felt as well. I don't do bumper stickers or window decals, nor jewelry that is considered "Christian". If a person can't tell by my life that I'm a child of God, then those other things will just be a mockery of His name.

A old friend up by Chicago set me the photo of the jacket he airbrushed. He's a good hearted man, trying to make a living and support his family. Airbrush work is spotty. He mainly does cars and leather touch-up and repair. After talking for a while he told me he was thinking about doing clothing. I told him If there is a business model, I would be willing to invest. I really don't care if it's profitable or not. Otherwise he's looking to move somewhere where there is steady work which is his preference but his wife and daughters are not wanting to move.

I don't know if you have noticed but when I go into town the traffic is well there is hardly no traffic. Maybe it's just like this locally to me. But it sure is strange to be one a just a few vehicles on a 4 lane divided highway.

I was in town last week and stopped at Long John Silvers. Only because I was hungry and haven't been there for several years. I was the only customer in the restaurant the entire time I was there. It was a strange feeling. I also noticed there was not a single drive through customer either. The restaurant was absolutely spotless and freshly painted. The food was good and being the only customer they treated me like a king.

It's a strange world we live in now. So much has changed in a very short amount of time, it's hard to know what to expect anymore.

Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸
