My sister and I stenciled this shirt for our dad for father's day.  We used a clorox bleach pen and an image printed from our computer, hence the fuzzy lines.

I also stenciled this Robert Smith shirt in the same manner.

I'm so impressed! I never thought a bleached stencil could turn out so well. If you don't mind my asking, what did you use to make the stencil? (contact paper? freezer paper?)
Again, very nice job!

Wow, thank you for all the nice comments.  As far as "technique", all I did was find an image online and have my sister help me make it a solid black-and-white in photoshop.  Then I printed it on regular computer paper.  For the Young Frankenstein stencil, I cut out the black part (with scissors and a straight edge) and discarded it.  The remaining white was now my stencil.  Next, I rolled up pieces of tape to fit underneath various parts of the stencil and taped it to the shirt.  After I had the image in place, I used the bleach pen to cover all of the open space of the stencil.  The shirt begins to bleach rather quickly, so when it looks like it isn't turning color any more, I carefully peel off the stencil and rinse off the bleach under running water.  After drying the shirt, I touch it up where needed with a black sharpie and the bleach pen.

For the Robert Smith stencil, I used the same method as above, except I cut out the black part of the image and used that as the stencil.  That's why he's outlined with bleach.  Also, I didn't do so well connecting the parts of his face, so his nose disappeared and his mouth got really small.  This was my first stencil, so I didn't try much to fix it.

Overall, this method is pretty quick and easy, but hardly flawless.  The paper gets very soggy, so the stencil is pretty much useless after one use. Next time I will probably try freezer paper, or card stock.

I hope this helped.  Thanks again for the positive feedback!

Thanks!

I'm actually trying to pick an Edward Gorey image to stencil, but have yet to find the right one, as the penwork is so intricate.  I'd love to hear any suggestions.
