I love all the bleached freezer paper stencil shirts on this board. I thought it would be interesting to do it in "reverse." By that I just mean instead of using the big piece of freezer paper and covering up the rest of the shirt, why not use the part that was cutout of the middle (no waste!) to block the bleach and then spray bleach evenly over the whole shirt for a kinda tiedye effect. I experimented and it turned out great! Here's some of my creations:
Sparrow:



Dandelions:


Owl:



I did tie up some of the fabric on the dandelion and owl shirt to make it look more tiedye like (I hope that makes sense!)

Thanks for looking! What do you guys think?

These look great. What do you use to stop the bleaching process?

Thanks! Cheesy  When I'm doing bleaching, I actually like to hang my shirts on a hanger out in the sun (dries faster.) I check it after each spraying. When I get the desired results, I then rinse the tshirt in the sink with cold water and a drop or two of soap on it. I wring it out pretty good and then immediately throw them in the washing machine on cold. I usually do three or so shirts at a time so I can wash them together by themselves for the first go round.

The outcome is terrific, and thanks for sharing your process. So many projects, so little time, but this seems just simple enough, I could even do it. I love your designs.

Thanks! These projects do go really fast if you hang the shirt in the sun, it dries quicker and speeds up the bleaching process. It only took about 30 minutes per shirt and that's with multiple applications of bleach.  Cheesy

Still awesome. I'm going to add a tag to this topic. So people who are searching for dyeing methods can find it easier.

Love it! I've never seen freezer paper used that way, but I approve. Grin I might have to steal this to make a few shirts....
