    A question to DaveP and Dav0r, how long do you think the bleach/paint will stay on until it fades away, due to washing, etc.?

    I made it from an in-game screenshot. I should have left the bleach on longer, but I was scared because it was my first time.

    So that's why my clothes kept on turning red!

    Now when I know this, I'll go figure out what that paper is called in Swedish then go buy some!

    I did some bleach stencils on T-Shirts yesterday.
    Ended up quite badly so I went nuts.
    They actually turned out pretty cool.

    I'll post pictures later.

    Edit:

    Here we go:

    So yeah, my stencil wasn't very good. First time I'd ever tried it so was disappointed when my design didn't show up very well.
    Eventually it faded into a deep red - but only after I'd done some random patterns by scrunching up my T-shirt and spraying it.




    Seeing the colour, it gave me an idea...





    I really like the blood effect it gives :D

    I agree, that looks awesome! I really want to try this, though I can't be bothered to buy an airbrush. It seems like the spray bottle still turned out okay - I'll just have to be careful with it.

    Does it really matter what material you use for the stencil? As long as it can be printed on and is non-absorbent it should work, right?

    Bleach should be permanent.

    I had an explosion in Chem last year that got a bleach wash all over the clothes I was wearing and the color doesn't return, bleach is pretty permanent.

    Also, to my knowledge, fabric paint should be given it's made with the assumption that it needs to survive a washing, but that may only apply to the quickie t-shirt spray bottles and such.

    Of course it's permanent. It makes the shirt return to its base color.


    and bump for awesomeness.

    Hmm, this will certainly be something to try later. I recently picked up 12 plain black shirts for $10 so I'll give it a go.

    For added easyness: Use a previously iron'd shirt. It's a good thing.

    It's like making a pencil drawing and erasing it. It doesn't come back.

    I've done some work on my stencil template but it still needs to be finished.



    As soon as I get it to the way I like it, I'll get started on putting it on my t-shirt.

    I would love to see the results. Physco Mantis is one of my favourite Metal Gear Solid characters.

    Know this is a little bump, but since I just found an airbrush in the garage, I decided to look this up again. My question is, is there anyway to know what the base color of a t-shirt is? Or are there any general guidelines, like how the black shirts seem to have brown underlying?

    Not really; For the most parts coloured tee-shirts are almost all made off of a white base colour; I can imagine dark olive green tee-shirts might use like a khaki base colour or something, only one way to find out honestly.

    No. It just soaked through.

    :(

    Next time I'll wrap the card in foil or something. Good job I tried it on an old t-shirt!

    Just make the face all black, and it'll be great. Also get rid of pockets, and similar (small) details.

    I've wanted to do this for a very long time.
    I just need to get the equipment which may be hard.

    I've got some stencils, will these work? Can you tell me what to fix?








    Feel free to use them.
