Bath Tub Bleaching

Usually I have my hands in a dye bath. But lately they've been in a bath tub.

I have been tye-dying for quite a while and have made some lovely things with the paper. Just the other it dawned on me to spray bleach on the tea-dyed paper to see what happens - and it was just what I wanted!

I love how the white and the brown contrast eachother and the splatters of bleach dance across the paper. This has to be done in the bath tub because I just have no where else to go wild with a bottle of bleach. Plus it doesn't hurt to keep the tub extra white.

In the end, the paper is much more interesting and beautiful.
