Bleach Pen Art (Reverse Batik)

I'm loving this new technique. It's amazing and I can't wait to use it! I've been experimenting at home and so far I've tried black cotton fabric and purple canvas. The longer you leave the bleach on, obviously the lighter it gets.

Draw the image with bleach pen *(resembles puff paint)

let it sit for at least 5-10 minutes...you can see it bleaching

The simpler the better!

Rinse bleach out WELL and wash with soap

This turned into a natural brown....leaving it on longer would make it lighter

here's my apron (planning on adding more!)

here's a stencil sticker that turned out a little fuzzy
