I first created the Rock Star Mehndi Bleach Pen Jeans.  Now the Courage shirt.  I saw some of these on a website and in one of those celebrity magazines selling for $60.  I went to Old Navy and purchased a men's thermal shirt for $10 (they're on sale this week).  With a bleach pen I wrote "courage."  Then after one hour, I rinsed it and took it out to the garage, laid it on some plastic and used liquid bleach with a paint brush to get the splatter effect.  Liquid bleach works faster than the bleach pen so stay to watch it so it doesn't eat the fabric.  Also make sure you've got something between the top and bottom layer so it doesn't bleed through--unless of course you want it to!

Have fun!

Thanks!  There's so many things to create with a bleach pen it's endless.  I saw a pair of Converse tennies done up really cool.

Have fun!

I never heard of a bleach pen. Could you show me an on-line picture of it, or an on-line shop that sells them?
Could it be possible to make your on bleach pen out of an old empty marker that you fill with liquid bleach?
Love your shirt!

The bleach pen is made by Clorox and be found near the regular liquid bleach in your local store.  Here's a pic from my site.  There's also a "how to" for making my Rockstar Mehndi bleach pen jeans.  http://www.maizehutton.com

The first thing I thought when I saw a commercial for the bleach pen was, what a great tool for writing in bleach!!!!  but I never got around to it hah.  Nice job!~
