Fabric Printing with Dishwasher Gel
Did you know that with a few supplies from your kitchen you can create your own printed fabric? All you will need is some cookies cutters and bleach based dish-washing gel. This technique produces a soft vintage look. The process is fast so keep and eye on your bleaching. For large pieces of fabric, you might need to work in stages.
Bleach-based automatic dishwasher gel
Medium hued t-shirt (pre-washed) or fabric
Piece of cardboard or an old magazine
1.Place the cardboard inside a t-shirt or under the fabric to prevent the dye from penetrating to the other side.
2. Squirt some of the bleach dishwashing gel into the dish.
3. Dip the cookie cutter into the gel and press onto the t-shirt.
4. The bleach will bleed into the fibers as it sets. Allow it to set for 30 minutes, then wash immediately to deactivate the bleach.
