Oh yeah, I never thought of using beeds to fix bleeding when using a stencil. That is an awsem idea! Im thinking about selling a few of these shirts in an upcoming art sale, hopefully people will like them, if not I will give them as christmas gifts.

Oooo, I like the result of the beads and the bleach stenciling!  Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks for the beadseast link.  It tells me things I needed to know.  One question: When it speaks of doing a separate backtrack thread, it does not show, or say, where the needle should go in & out.  Do I thread through a few beads at a time? Or the entire line of the curve at once?

Thanks --
PS

I usually "couch" long lines of beads, but it looks to me like the backtrack goes through the entire line of the curve.  I'd make a little backstitch at the end of the curve and go back through the beads from there.  Does that make any sense?
