    I had fun with a bleach pen with this one - it worked very quickly, so I advise doing one at a time so you can wash the bleach off the moment you want it to stop working. I found out by googling that you can reverse the possible damage by bleach (long term) by treating with Hydrogen Peroxide.

    Anyway, I thought the bleaching looked a bit fuzzy, so I then added in some green permanent marker for a bit more fun

    I'm still looking for that darn bleach pen. I keep forgetting when I get to Wally's and I'm sure they have it. I just love your newest trick!

    Not mine, I'm afraid, a quilty friend got some from Amazon because we couldn't find anything like that here. She went searching for them after I bleached some flowers on another block with just thickened domestic bleach and a fine artists brush. I had more control using those than with this pen, but it was really quick, so I'm not grumbling,

    Love it! I did a similar thing with coloured cardstock, back when I was passionate about cardmaking. Now my passion has turned to quilting - BIG TIME!!

    Good for you - try it on a tiny corner of your intended fabric first, to see how long you need to leave it on - in my case it was only seconds. I tried to do all four at once, and by the time I had done the fourth, the first was unusable because it had spread too much.

    Also, some batiks work better than others, so if your first choice doesn't produce nice results, don't give up, try another one. Best of luck.

    Right...it seems like timing is the key on playing with the bleach. I'll probably try several different things. I also bought a set of markers and some fabric paint, so I'm good to do some experimenting :D:

    not that brave, Lace, but yours is awesome! Do you think putting the hydrogen peroxide on after the bleach makes any toxic fumes?
    Maybe not enough to hurt after dunking in the water.
    So much room for creativity with this technique! yum!

    Great block. Clever use of bleach pen. I would never have thought of doing that.

    I have been looking forward to doing this block because I knew it would accommodate my little ships. Itís a very simple block but I really like it.
