21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Bleaching! on: December 26, 2006 12:54:51 PM
Alright, so I absolutely love the look that you get by splashing bleach onto fabric and then stencilling over it. My only fear is this: once you've bleached it, and then go to wash it pre-stencilling, won't the bleach residue left over, end up getting all over the shirt?

A silly worry, I know, but little bleach spots are a lot different, design-wise, than the nice big splatters...
22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and a record shirt. Yay. on: December 10, 2006 05:05:04 PM
So this may or may not be my first post (honestly I can't remember), but the shirt is definitely not my first stencil. (Dude, it's totally my...fourth. ^_^)

Front. The words say "Even if saving you sends me to heaven," which is, of course a line from The Acoustic Song/Guardian Angel. Down in the corner, not exactly where I wanted it, is a little marionette ("use me as you will/pull my strings just for a thrill").

Back. Of course there are wings: the song is sort of talking about angels. I drew 'em myself, and purposely made them kind of small/simple/pathetic: guardian angels don't necessarily want everyone to know what they are, right? I have since filled in the islands and gone over those wings with glitter-paint.

What do you think? I'm proud of it, despite the slight underspray that's going on in some of the words and stuff.

Also, last summer, I made my first (semi) multilayered stencil. It was pretty sweet. I actually made it for someone, but when she saw it, she decided it wasn't exactly what she was looking for, and didn't want to buy it anymore. Ah, well. (It's a size S if anyone out there wants to trade something for it? *grin*)
