Hey hey! I wanted to take my bleach stenciling to the next level for my swap partner, this is the first time I've tried a multi-pass! It was interesting to try to wrap my brain around it at first, but now I'm looking forward to trying this technique again!



I started off with a cool design, (I did NOT design the owl, haha, my skills lie mainly in execution, not design, sadly) and set it up in illustrator, in layers, with transparencies stacked up to help me visualize.

Then came the vector cutting on my digital cutter (oh how I depend on that dear thing) and some more visualization to make sure I was doing it right, before the setup on the shirt, masking, and actual passes of airbrushed bleach began. This is the most complicated stencil to date that I've done! Lots of little bits to keep track of, lol!

So basically, I put some stencils on the shirt, airbrushed bleach, Let dry. Repeat 4 times with slightly different stencil layers. whew!

Ok, without further preamble, THE PICTURES!

This links again to flickr for a short video of the stencil removal: (eee!)




This was so much fun to make, I'm so glad I entered the swap, so my fabulous swap pal could drive and inspire me to do this! Thanks, sweetyetevil!

It is really cute. I have been too scared to try this myself. My daughter loved it - she is an owl nut.

This is awesome.  I once tried something like this (multi-layered bleach thingy) but I was impatient and ruined it. lol

What an astonishing tutorial! I had no idea that you could get this kind of image from such simple elementary techniques!

So inspiring!

Beautiful! Love it! I too would love to know if anyone has any idea if a project like this would work using an exacto knife?

stincils are my thing and i must say that this shirt looks really good, however you went the most complicated round-a-bout way of constructing it lol. on your computer program there is a setting called posterize, at least thats what its called on my computer. this will put it into layers for you, then all you have to do is make sure there are no closed lines. ie no circles!!! well its not that easy to explain but keep working at it and youll find ways to make it easyer for yourself, keep up the good work

This is so awesome!  I am jealous of your cutting machine thingy.  I do super simple stencils most of the time since I cut them by hand.  I also haven't figured out how to do the multi layered technique yet.  great job!  Wisted

Awwww how neat is that!!!

Just want to reiterate that the design portion of this project was by no means created by me, but the planning and execution and final product were!

Thank you so much, wow!
