I have been wanting to try bleach painting on fabric for a while now, and I finally had the time ( and dress) to do it. I bought this simple black dress for only 4 euros and wanted to spice it up a bit and the cheapest way to do that is by painting with bleach. It’s incredibly easy and fun to do.
Here’s the tutorial:
Before you begin: Be careful with what you’re wearing, unless you want to bleach your entire outfit ;)
**And apologies for all the cat hairs, white cat’s and a black dress just don’t match…
1. Take some chalk and draw your drawing on the fabric.
2. Take the bleach and a brush and place something underneath the fabric. ( the bleach will go trough the fabric, so make sure that there is something between the fabric pieces. I used an old pizza box)
3. Dip the brush in the bleach and start drawing over the chalk drawing.
4. Let the bleach dry. Rinse the fabric and hand wash.
