Bleached native indian skull painted clothing

On black fabric you get a beautiful sunset of orange colours come from nowhere as the bleach takes to the fabric
This is a very quick process & super cheap. All you need is a black cotton T-shirt & the basic cheap bleach from your local super market & a paint brush. I put the t-shirt onto a old sheet of plastic making sure to put a plastic bag inside the shirt so the front does not touch the back. This is so the bleach dosn't travel to the back of the shirt. Wear safety glasses so you don't splash bleach in your eyes. Use the bleach neat & paint on your design, try to be fast so it dosnt over develop & damage the fabric. As soon as you have finished leave it to soak for 1 hour in a bucket of water then wash in the machine.
