This tutorial will show you how to create hand drawn designs on your clothing by using a bleach pen!
My favorite part about this project is how versatile it is. You can use just about any piece of clothing! I chose to use a pair of leggings and a shirt.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Will Need
What You Will Need:
-Bleach Pen (found at any major grocery store in the laundry isle)
-Article of Clothing (Dont have one you want to bleach? Find something at the thrift store!)
-Something to stick inside of the piece of clothing so the bleach doesnt bleed through it. (I used a flattened cereal box here)
Step 2: Lets Begin!
1. Start by sliding your cereal box, or whatever your are using, inside of the piece of clothing you are going to bleach.
2. Smooth out all of the wrinkles and make sure your shirt is straight so your design isn't crooked in the end.
Step 3: Draw Your Design
Start designing your clothing!
Note: The bleach will spread out a little bit so dont make your lines too thick.
Get creative. Look up designs online, freehand them, or draw something you love!
You can also print out stencils of words and use those.
I tried out a Native American/Southwestern Print.
Step 4: Let It Process, Rinse
Once you are finished with your design, allow the bleach to set into your clothing.
1. When it has set as long as you would like it to, go to the kitchen or bathroom and wash off the rest of the remaining bleach with COLD water.
2. Once the remaining bleach is washed off, give it another good rinse under the cold water.
3. Throw it in the washing machine. Wash with cold water. Dry in the dryer.
If you don't have a washing machine you can rinse your item really well and line dry it.
Step 5: YOURE FINISHED!!
What a easy way to decorate your clothing!
