you can remove dreads and have OK hair after it. i removed mine after having them for about 4 months. it took about a day to comb them all out and many many tubes of conditioner. and i continue to condition like mad but my hair is still long and in pretty good shape. so if removing them is any ones fears, they can be combed out, it just takes a whole lot of time....

OK to make the stencil i just used regular printer paper, i think you could possibly use it twice but it got a little torn up from the first use, oh well. Next i taped it on the shirt where i wanted it. then i drew in the blank areas with the bleach pen. i let it set for maybe 15 30 mints. i just kinda waited for the pen "ink" or bleach to dry. then i just washed it in cold water, i let it dry and it was done. it is yet to have any holes in it * i made it in February* so i think this all works.

eeeeep! i love the shirt for your boyfriend. my boy is also a kurt fan, and i was wondering if you could post/message me the instructions on how you went about making that shirt,  and where you got the stencil from. i would love love love that.... thank you Smiley

i made the stencil from a picture of Kurt i found on line. i then changed it to a black and white photo in photo shop, and then made it absolute so that it was just black and white. i then cute out all the white parts with a exacto knife.
WOw, I love the bleached shirt! What did you use? Javel?
as for the bleach i used a bleach pen by clorox... i got it at walmart and it didn't cost a whole lot... i made three shirts with it. the bleach its self from the pen was relatively thick and stayed in one place, so not a whole lot of bleeding occurred.
WHat sort of place matts were they? (the ones where I come from are made of corkboard - or am i just being dim?)

they were fabric place Matt's. i would try looking for thouse, they are normally decorated with embroidery and such witch is why i picked to use them.

i hope that helps every one

thanks every one. to make the bags i just used one place mat sewed up the sides, and sewed a triangle on the sewed sides so it would have a more boxy shape. I'm not quite sure if that makes any sense at all, but if you want i could easily draw up some directions *i am better visually than i am with words... the joy of being an artist Wink*

why dont you paint a picture card sized, and then copy it , print out as many copys as you need for the backs of the cards and paste it on the back of every card in the pack? that way they would all match, and it would be your painting. This would give you more time to actualy paint, and the cutting out and glueing shouldnt take to much time. then to secure down the picture you can use acrylic medum/ glaze to make it shiney and water proof. at least thats what i might do.... in some way i am in the same situation as you are, figureing out what to give guys is just no fun! haha anyways good luck
