I realize this is pretty old but, it's really good and I think it should be submitted in the "Print and Dye" contest.

Heh, Either I did something totally wrong or totally right, it turned out red! Perhaps it was the natural color of the shirt, but it fits the paint splatter (┌|┐) Maybe a wrong amount of bleach? Sorry for cell phone picture quality.
Sorry, here is the picture... Yay first instructable picture!

I'm wrong again! It's orange now! It's quite hilarious.

My guess is that you aren't doing anything wrong (in terms of the color). The color that you end up with when doing this can be unpredictable because black dyes vary. Some shirts end up brown, some orange, some red, etc. It depends on the colors that the dye manufacturers used to make the black dye. Thanks for sharing the pic! Peace!
I always get jealous when the turn out red. It just means you got lucky. Most garments turn brown.
AHHH!!!! I misread it wrong, I put 3 parts bleach to 1 water!!!! Haha, I didn't think that seemed right, anyways, I ruined a few shirts, but I will try this again with some plain black ones.

Great, I highly recommend playing around with this. Try different dark colors to see what the base dye is after extraction.
