so cute! i especially like the retro diamond one, would definitely make a great set of glasses. did you use the etching cream or sand blasting for your votives? i tried the cream on a mirrored box and even after *several* coats it just never came out as clear as you cute little votives.
thanks for the comments everyone, i'll have to let my bf know what a hit he's been on here.
shizen: i'm pretty ghetto and low maintenance about the stenciling. i used bristol paper to make the stencil, its thick enough that the bleach doesn't bleed through. roll up strips of tape (diy double-sided tape) and put them around the edges of the stencil so that it hugs the shirt as closely as possible. covered up all areas of the shirt that were not covered by stencil, with newspaper, filled up a bottle with bleach (i don't remember if i diluted it or not, i had tried different variations of bleach on some test fabric earlier) and sprayed the bleach over the stencil. I sprayed it as i waved my hand back and forth over the shirt, i'm not sure if spraying it directly at the stencil would make it too saturated and cause the bleach to bleed. It is also very important to put something inside the shirt, so that the image doesn't bleed through to the other side; again with the ghettoyness, i just use grocery bags.
a bleach stencil tee i made for my bf, he has recently moved to rural florida; where, we all know some of the most close-minded people in the nation live. So I made him this shirt for the silent protest of stupidity.
