Whenever I try this my bleach bleeds under the stencil and the image is completely distorted. I tried to spray less on but then I can't even see the change! I then tried to just spray it to see what colours I could get it to and it never went white. Maybe I'm using weak bleach? I didn't even put any water in it as I was going nuts trying to get the damn shirt to bleach!

Make sure you have the right kind of fabric. I think bleach only works on natural fabrics. Also, bleach can go bad. If you have had your bleach for longer than a year it probably won't work for this project. To prevent bleeding spray just a little bleach at a time (Which you did, good job). Some colors it will take up to 15 or 20 sprays to get the right color. Hope this helps.

you did a GORGEOUS job on these bleach jobs! i don't know how you get such perfect edges! i've been looking for a tutorial on craftster and can't find one. can you, by any chance, tell me what you use for the stencils to make the edges so beautiful and not 'fuzzy'?

i saw someone say freezer paper and a spray bottle with bleach (not sure if it's diluted), but i can't figure out how to hold the paper to the shirt. i thought about trying contact paper. have you tried that?

the first one is my FAV  Wink

The magic is in the freezer paper. Cut out your stencil and use a cool temp iron to iron it onto the fabric. The freezer paper has plastic on one side and the heat will make it stick! It's the coolest thing ever! Make sure you spray your bleach very lightly to prevent the bleach from bleeding under the stencil. Hope this helps!

Oh wow, I love them all. Especially that drool-worthy red one at the top! I could totally imagine these selling for $40+ in a store. Great job!
