A very good friend of mine has an obsession with his Volvo 245. Lovingly, he has named him "Ernest"...I thought a photo of his would make a great stencil -so, here you go.

"Ernest"

The bleach bled a bit...but I really like the effect on my old brown shirt.

that is a really cool shirt!

i'm wondering what you use for the stencil because someone said in another post that when they used bleach with freezer paper it bled.. do you just dilute the bleach a lot or something? i'm trying to make a bleach stencil now hence all the questions Cheesy

I did use freezer paper. I started with the gel from a bleach pen but found it was too weak so I then diluted some bleach and dabbed it on with a cotton ball. It did actually bleed...but I found I like the effect.

This is awesome.
I'm completely obsessed with my Volvo 850 GLT.

I think its only something a Volvo owner can truly appreciate.
We're in a class of our own. haha.

But I seriously love every model of Volvos
nuts,  I know.

I went from a '86 Volvo240 to a '03 Mitsubishi Lancer a few years ago....

Upgrade, my ass! I miss that Volvo more and more every day. 

There's just something about a Volvo...
