Bleached out images ~ Tutorial

Before I found this tutorial i have tried this technique without sucess & I melted my paintbrush!! So I think now I may have another try. Another member added a comment to this technique and said it should not be used for scrapbooking as the bleach is too harsh and she uses a cotton bud to dip into the bleach.

Bleached out Images

by Beate Johns

Use household bleach to add highlights to embossed images.

Supplies

  • Bleach

  • Plastic or glass container to hold bleach

  • Watercolor brush

  • Detailed image stamp

  • VersaMark™ ink

  • Embossing powder

  • Embossing heat tool

  • Colored cardstock

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Ink stamp with Versamark™ and stamp the image on colored cardstock.

  2. Step 2

    Pour embossing powder over the image. Tap off excess. Clear embossing powder was used here to create a soft image. Any color of embossing powder would work.

  3. Step 3

    Use an embossing heat tool to heat the embossing powder until it melts.

  4. Step 4

    Add bleach to a glass or plastic container and dip the watercolor brush into it. Apply bleach to image.

  5. Step 5

    Let dry or use the heat tool to speed up the drying process.

  6. Step 6

    Finish your project.

Variations

    Try Adding Color
    After bleaching out the image, let bleach dry and apply different colors to the image. Try all color mediums including colored pencils, watercolor crayons, or reinkers.

An alternative to using the bleach (for archival reasons) would be to do a wash with white gouache.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
