Happy weekend all! As you can see, I doodled all over two pairs of old leggings with a Clorox bleach pen, and let me tell you, it is delightfully addicting and super simple. I’m excited to share this tutorial with you, so read on!You are going to need a Clorox Bleach Pen (about $2.99 USD). The one pictured above was more than enough for the two pairs of leggings that I doodled on. Make sure you do this in a well-ventilated area. Take your leggings (or anything really, a T-shirt, jeans, whatever) and stick a piece of cardboard inside to prevent the bleach from penetrating through. Go ahead and doodle away to your heart’s content with your bleach pen. I drew some sort of tribal design (just a bunch of lines, dots, and triangles) on my black pair and hearts on my purple pair. You can draw dots, bows, music notes, skulls, flowers, words – the design possibilities are limitless.
Just remember, the bleach comes out in a gel-like consistency, and a little goes a long way. You don’t need to glob it on – a light layer will suffice. It might be a smart idea to practice on something else first so you know exactly how the bleach applies. If you plan on drawing small hearts, don’t make them “blobby” or too round, or they might end up looking more like triangles. Instead, make them skinny and pointy because the bleach will bleed or expand out a tiny little bit. Let it sit for 30 minutes or so, then rinse or throw them in the wash. Also, make sure that your article of clothing does not contain synthetic material, or it may not work. Hope you decide to give it a go and have fun!!!
