Bleach Pen Skeleton Shirt Tutorial

videoSo here you go folks, a tutorial on using a Clorox Bleach Pen to dye/bleach out a 100% cotton tee shirt. This one, a skeleton! The bleach works out to a variety of oranges, kind of creepy looking actually. Skill level really depends on your art skills. The more confident artist will just sit down and draw out a skeleton. The less experienced crafter may need to practice and/or take a bit of time. All in all it's just bones and a costume, so does it really matter if it's not perfect? Have fun!

Click here to view a (larger!) you tube version. You Tube got upset at me and I had to change the music. Then I changed the music and it pouted for a few days, guess they forgive me and it's up now. I changed the music to my daughter's concert band, how can they get mad about that? The music is cool, "The Pines of Rome, Appian Way" (where all the dead soldiers rise out of their graves and march into Rome...appropriate I thought. You can here their 'boom boom' march as the back beat, cool.) It was the performance done at Disney Hall (hall, not land- they were and still are the only youth symphony allowed to perform there.), so it's pretty good. Any who, larger version at the link!

That's cool. The You tube video says it's not available. But you probably know that already.

Your skeleton is great!

Thanks, I am wondering why/how the you tube video even went up???? So weird. It was rejected and I had to reconfigure it. Ugh. Technology is not my friend, again.

You are so crafty!!! I loved it! My daughter loved the song the best!

what is the song playing on yours. It's different from the you tube one. My kids loved it.

Mel, thanks!!! The song on the first video is from "Nightmare Before Christmas", the prelude I believe, by Danny Elfman which got me bumped off you tube in favour of a public domain alternative! The sound track is really awesome and I am addicted to the movie!
