Here's a new dino skull painted with bleach! This one is on a hooded sweatshirt. 

The thick fabric of a sweatshirt makes the process a little more time consuming, both in application and washing it out. It seems to take more bleach to get the desired colour - I guess because more fabric = more dye.

I'm in the US at the moment and couldn't get hold of the "thick bleach" I usually use at home (in the UK) and so was working with regular bleach I found in WalMart, which might have been part of the problem? I don't know. The thick bleach stays in place better and doesn't seep or spread, I find. So there's a pro tip! If you can, you want thick bleach for painting! The thin stuff is probably better for spraying, but I wouldn't know for sure as I haven't experimented much with spray stencil bleaching.

This was a commission. I am opening for pre-orders that I will commence when I get back to the UK. Place orders through my Etsy and you can use the code PREORDER to get £5 off (just over $7 USA) until July 15th!

Apologies for the less than fantastic pictures - these were taken on my phone.
