In anticipation of July 15th, I was inspired to try my hand at bleach stenciling a shirt.  My first attempt didn't turn out very good.  I used too much bleach when I sprayed it onto the shirt because I wanted to make sure I could see the outline.  What ended up actually happening was the bleach leaked underneath the freezer paper stencil... Sad... sad day.

My second attempt turned out almost how I wanted it.  The circle to represent the resurrection stone is a little more oval than I wanted it to be but it's still cool.  The original attempt was just the deathly hallows symbol.  The second attempt I used letter stickers to add "The Deathly Hallows":

The shirt is still wet from when I rinsed it.  I was too excited to show it off.

Side view.

Here's the one for my momma!  (She's a Slytherin fan so I used a green shirt for her!)

Side view:

I wanted to contain the bleach spray this time so I put extra freezer paper around the symbol and I like the way it turned out.  I had a little boo boo by the arm pit but hopefully once she wears it it'll be hidden!

Thanks for looking! C&C appreciated!

Wow, that looks really good! I love how the design is on the side like that. It looks totally professional.

There's so much trial and error with bleach painting, especially getting things the color you want because you never know how its going to turn out it all depends on how the fabric was dyed. So getting it that good on your second try was great.

I really love the shirt and I may have to use your idea because I never thought of using bleach with freezer paper, I just thought it would leak and make the freezer paper soggy, but I'll have to play around with it some.

Thanks so much!  The first time I tried the freezer paper did get soggy and the bleach leaked underneath so the symbol is kind of muddled.  I just used waaay too much bleach the first time so I was conservative with it the second go around.  I definitely recommend playing around with this method.  As long as the stencil isn't too complicated, you can have a newly designed shirt in under 10 minutes!

This is all kinds of awesome. I keep meaning to give my hand a try at the bleach stenciling since I already do the frezerpaper part. I just might have to do this soon now lol.

Great idea! I use contactpaper and use a lot of time cutting it out with a carpet-knife. But the idea using letterstickers is great! So much work saved Wink

I`m an aquarious, so that means I`m really creative and do a lot of creative things and NEVER finish any of `em Wink
