BLEACH BUM: still a beginner bleacher

Determined to score a victory, I took an old pair of black cotton shorts and decided to draw a cat face on the side. During round 2, I was more careful and articulate with the bleach pen (still used the fine tip end) to draw a small cat face. I let the bleach dry for about 20 minutes before carefully rinsing it off and throwing it into the dryer.

Woot! I love the simple design, and I think it turned out wonderful! With a win in my corner, I added a second cat face on the other side of my sweats. I took a second pair of black sweats and carefully wrote "love" on one side. Again, I let the bleach set in for about 15 to 20 minutes before carefully rinsing it off.

I'm pretty happy with the results with Round 2 with the bleach pen. As soon as I find another suitable shirt for bleaching, I plan to use a cookie cutter as part of the design. What I like so far is I paid $.249 for the bleach pen and I've been able to complete three projects. I can't wait to use the bleach pen again!

What a cute little cat face! "Love" looks lovely as well. Good job with the bleach pen! My only experience with bleach so far has been... messy, to say the least.
