Workshop Wednesday: Textile Design Using bleach
By Liz Young
You all know the one: that old trusty shirt you just can't part ways with, but rarely seem to wear. Spice up your old wardrobe items by adding a little DIY design to them with this super simple method!
Things you'll need:
Cup of bleach
Pencils with unused eraser
Any wardrobe item or fabric you want to re-invent
Plastic sheet to cover workspace
Step One: Dip eraser end of pencil into bleach
Step Two: Let excess drip off and then use to create designs on your fabric.
Tip: Use an old scrap of practice fabric first, it takes a little getting used to because the bleach tends to bleed a lot.
Step Three: Enjoy your newly re-invented piece!
You can use this method to make galaxy tees, decorate canvas shoes or bags, or anything you can bleach!
