Add pictures, patterns and messages to your clothing with discharge paste, a sticky white goo that discharges pigment. You can paint it on, screen it on, stamp it on, or use stencils!! See my other instructables for more.

Discharge paste, findable at arts and craft stores. I forget how much it costs, but its like paint in terms of quantity needed.

Iron that can steam. Alternatively, you can produce steam with microwaves, stoves and ovens. I've never tried these methods, but theoretically they should work, too.

Discharge paste applicator, eg fingers, but more likely a paint brush, available at both arts and craft stores and hardware stores. Maybe even the SuPeR market if you get a meat baste-er.

Natural fiber fabric with pigment (not paint).

Optionally: cardboard to make stencils, or silk screen.

I recently attended a workshop held at our local quilt store. We played with a new product call deColourant and deColourant plus. This is a color removing agent that does not smell and easy to use. We were asked to bring found" objects from home to create designs. The deColourant clear removes color from fabric. The more heat you use the more color removal. The deColourant plus adds color! What a fun product. The company that makes it is called Kandi Corp. All I can say is wow. I will post pics soon.
