So my friend Tracy’s monthly challenge this month was bleach pens. Well, I guess everyone’s making bleach pen shirts lately, because I went to a few places and couldn’t find one! I still wanted to participate in the challenge, so I decided to try painting some bleach onto a shirt. Well, it worked out pretty good! I could see doing a lot with this method.
I have a splashless bleach (what will they come up with next?) that’s got more of a thicker texture to it, making it easier to paint on. So, because I’m completely freaked out about getting bleach anywhere, I put just a tiny bit into a little dixie cup (yes, it’s a dinosaur dixie cup…be jealous).
*Edited* Forgot to mention I placed a piece of cardboard in between the shirt to make sure it didn’t go through to the other side! I roughly drew my design lightly with some chalk, just to make sure that’s where I wanted it placed. I wanted to make a paisley design, so I used my bandana as inspiration.
Check out Tracy’s monthly challenges, if you haven’t yet!! They’re a lot of fun!
