Video Tutorial – Bleach Football Shirt
Here are the steps I took to make my bleach shirt
Step 1 – Load the free cutting file into your favorite cutting software. I used Mylar for my stencil. This material is re-usable. You will have to check for cut setting for your machine type. I could have also cut out of acrylic on the Glowforge if I was make a lot of shirts. If you plan on that please let me know. I can do something like that for you. Using vinyl is an option, remember it is single use.
Step 2 – Cut your material. Then weed the spots where you want the bleach to go.
Step 3 – It was a beautiful sunny day here in Wisconsin when I did my shirt so the bleach process did not take long. I put a garbage bag between the shirt layers. Then laid the shirt on the lawn. I then took my mylar and spray adhesive and applied it to the back of my stencil. Then I laid the stencils down on the shirt where I wanted them
Step 4 – Lets Bleach!!! Then I took my spritz bottle, I did you full bleach since my shirt was a blend. Now, spray bottles do matter. I bleached before and my spritzer nozzle was not the best. I find I like the fine misters. You can reuse the Dawn power wash bottles too! They work great. I then sprayed my shirt. If you watch in the video you will see it went fairly quickly!!! Once I had the football and yard lines the way I wanted them I pulled the stencils and sprayed the rest of the shirt. I also removed the spritzer out of the bottle and sprinkled the bleach on the shirt for an extra effect and style
Step 5 – Once your shirt is at the bleach level you want, take it and put it in a cold water peroxide bath. It does not take much. This neutralizes the bleaching process. Once that is done toss in the wash and dry!
Step 6 – You could add a saying like Game Day or something. I kept my more neutral. Wear and enjoy!!!
