- Cardboard-to use as a work space and extra to place under the shirt, so the bleach doesn't reach the back.
- Bleach- I used a 2:1 mixture of bleach and water. I put some in a spray bottle and additional in a bowl.
- Paintbrush and rag.
- Design- any stencil will do. I used our Lucille logo and cut it using the Cricut. (Best investment!)
- T shirt- I ironed mine. You don't want wrinkles fudging up the spray pattern
- Gloves- I have a bad habit of forgetting this part. I'm pretty sure I no longer have fingerprints.
Set up your area, place cardboard in shirt and place your design. I sprayed the back of my design with some multi-purpose spray adhesive just to help the tentacles stay down. Using a paintbrush, dunk it into your bleach mix and paint around the design.
When you feel you've sufficiently painted around all the detail take your rag, dunk in mixture and blot around the design. I forgot to take a picture of this step...
Now spray the area further out from your design, I chose to spray from the corner and bottom so little splatters reached the collar and sleeve.
Once you've painted, blotted, and sprayed to your liking you've got to wait. Five to fifteen minutes should work, you can gauge it by the color change. Take off your design and wash the shirt. That's it. Fin.
Oh I forgot it's also super helpful if you have a good supervisor.
