Bleach Pen Experiment Take 1



Bleach Pen + TShirt = Happy Kid
I took a t-shirt and drew a design on it with one of those wonderful multi-purpose bleach pens.

Close up of the design. Really simple. I learned a few things about using the pen. It is prone to blobbing on first touch to the fabric.


Uly wearing the shirt. I left it on about 15 minutes. I wasn't really timing it. Then I popped it in the washer with a load of clothes that were in the process of washing.

I think this is going to become a favorite pastime of mine...

That is an awesome idear...
Is that all free hand or did you have some sort of design...I cant make stars free hand....I wanna make some!!!

I was questioning my star drawing ability so I drew it on a piece of paper first. Then I cut it out and traced it. Everything else is just freehand blobs.

I'm trying to find something else to bleach today. I have a green t-shirt that I think I will try my hand on.

Well, finally I've seen a design on a t-shirt. I've heard for months and months about Ben's t-shirt deal and you've done the first one I've seen! Very neat idea. I wonder how intricate the designs can be?
