How to Stencil Your Own Homemade T-shirt (Part 2) - IRateThis T-Shirts
How To: Beachy Waves - Cupcakes and Cashmere
Every day I faced off against lackluster tresses, while two friends of mine couldn’t stop raving about their own glossy, sexy hair. They had recently stopped shampooing — just went cold turkey — and the results were marvelous. Both are decidedly un-crunchy, so I knew they weren’t making some hippieish statement about evil soap conglomerates or shampoo pollution in our waterways; this no-suds policy, I reasoned, must actually be good for hair. What did I have to lose? I tossed out my shampoo, began simply rinsing my hair in the shower every day, and waited to be dazzled by my new chemical-free, naturally lustrous mane. The payoff was a while in coming, and I soon regretted having told everyone about my little experiment.
Step Three Now we are ready to bleach the shirt, but first it is important that we get the appropriate bleach to water ratio. If you do not have enough bleach your design will look muted, or you will have to spray the design multiple times. If you have too much bleach it will weaken the fibers of the shirt and it will start to tear after only a few washes. For this design I use a ratio of 70% Water and 30% Bleach. My spray bottle has marking at every 100ml so I added300ml of Javex bleach and 700ml of water.
