Here are the steps I took to achieve this look:
So the first step is to place a piece of cardboard in between the front of the shirt and the back of shirt so the bleach doesn't leak through or get on your surface. Next draw out your design or words in chalk on the shirt. This part can be a little tricky and may take a while so be patient. All of the chalk will wash out so don't worry if you make mistakes!
Now trace over your sketch with a small paint brush dipped in non-diluted bleach. Go slowly and use plenty of bleach. You may need to go over your lines multiple times. Slowly, you will see your design appear as you brush. The second thing I did was took my shirt outside and splatterd the shirt with bleach from the paint brush to get the "starry" effect. Some designs may turn orange, some may turn blue or some may turn white. It depends on the fabric, the dye used for the black fabric and the amount of bleach you use while painting on your design.
For my design, I used lyrics from one of my very favorite Copeland songs (play above). This was honestly a very simple project. The only time consuming part was writing it out in chalk. But the bleaching didn't take more than 25 minutes.
Let me know what you think or if you decide to do it yourself! :)
