i started with a blank target t-shirt (they're so super nice & soft), traced the basic outline of the skull shape from my computer screen, spray glued the paper to some heavy-ish art paper stuff, x-actoed it out, & sprayed straight bleach over it. i'm still in the process of beading... you can't really see them in the picture, but there are tiny silver/clear seed beads scattered throughout the bleached areas.

did you use straight bleach, or did you water it down a bit?
thanks

it really reminds me of the skeleton on top of the clock from The Last Unicorn.  groovy though.

yeah, just straight bleach poured into an old spray bottle. i only had to let it sit for a few minutes... you have to watch out, though; i've let it eat holes through things before.

Freakin' sweet!  Did the bleach eat through the paper stencil at all?
