DIY // Alien T Shirt

Far out Far out
Supplies // black cotton tee, bleach, sponge brush, contact paper, scissors or xacto knife

How to // I made a stencil out of contact paper by drawing the alien head on the back of the paper. Most contact paper will have graph lines on the back, this makes it easier to draw an even design. Next, I cut it out using a xacto knife.

Before bleaching, I put the shirt over a plastic bin lid to prevent bleeding and then I carefully placed my alien head on the shirt. I did have to readjust once to make it centered, but this did not weaken the adhesive on the paper.

I took everything outside and carefully dabbed bleach with a sponge brush around the edges of my design first to ensure the lines of the design would be defined. **Please be careful using bleach. Wear gloves. Use it in a well-ventilated space if you choose to stay inside**

In the sunlight, the bleach will start removing color almost immediately. I kept dabbing and splattering the bleach across the shirt until I was satisfied with how it looked. I let it lighten and dry outside. Finally, I peeled off the paper before putting it into the wash. Once it does a good tumble in the dryer, it's ready to wear.
