Use a Sharpie to add color My client – a shark from Shark Tank was making a TV appearance, and we were asked to bring two of the same shirts. We made two custom black Western shirts with white embroidery, and he absolutely loved them. In the middle of the shooting day, the director asked for everyone to go change into their second outfit. What?! I had no idea about the need for a second look. They’d told us to bring two of the same.I had an idea: I remembered, from the year before, how I’d used a Sharpie to color in a pair of red studded boots for an actress in a film, which worked like a charm. My assistant and I grabbed black Sharpies and went to work on the white embroidery. The second shirt ended up looking even better than the first, with colored-in dark charcoal embroidery. I love a happy accident.
