After seeing the pic of your socks today, I just had to use the idea for a tee.  My son just got accepted into Podiatric Medical School and I knew he needed it!  It was my first attempt at using a mylar sheet and not freezer paper--a little more
challenging.

Here's the link to a pic of the tee.  I hope it works!

that is extremely cool.  I like the idea of a make-your-own bleach pen, and it seems to have turned out really well.  Nice skeleton socks, too.  Smiley

That is a wonderful stencil of Frida ... one other I've seen looks too cartoony and really emphasizes her unibrow.  Sad

Your stencil shows how beautiful and unique she truly was. Great job!

When I use straight bleach (or diluted with water) I get terrible bleeding around the edges. I can't seem to get crisp edges. I do much better with the gel pen. Did you mix anything with the bleach besides perhaps water?
