Reverse Pigment Dying ~ Spraying, Stamping, Stencils
Some of the coolest t-shirts I've seen mysteriously look like magic photos of leaves or some other radio-graphed image. I finally found out that it's done with bleach. Come and experience the fun of transforming a plain garment into what will soon be one of your favorites. Make them for your friends and siblings or just keep them all yourself. Be sure to wear clothes that you don't mind getting a little bleach on...it gets ubiquitous (not only that, it gets everywhere !)...how many times have you wondered how you got that bleach spot on something.
