Bleach Technique.

The current challenge over at the Paperartsy blog this time is a Bleach Technique.

This is my creation!!

I started off with a piece of watercolour card, sprayed with water and sprinkled on some Infusions in Blackcurrant and a little Violet Storms.

Once dry, with the help of the video that Darcy supplied in the original post, I stamped with bleach using the larger chevron from Hot Picks 1501.

I followed the same technique using Mini 28.

I used the TCW Rebekah Meier designs stencil that is available on the Paperartsy website for the bird. I used a paperstump dipped in bleach and gently rubbed through the stencil.

I created the outline of my figure using a black and brown Pitt Artist pen.

I then glued the watercolour paper onto some reclaimed wood in the shape of an art house ready to sit on a shelf!

I love this technique, will be trying this again!!

Don't forget to check out the post and all of the inspiration supplied by all of the bloggers!!!


  1. Lovely tag!! Bryan, Fabulous result and colours. xx

  2. Fab tag! Love the colours, and the bleach worked very well

  3. Very effective! I get the feeling bleach works a lot better on the Infusions than on the Brushos. Lovely tag.
