Pink simple summer pleasures - Bleach painting

We've been trying to come up with different ways of painting. Painting by taking away colour AKA bleaching was fun and easy to set up and clean up.

All you need is an old colourful piece of fabric (I used a thrift store skirt), little bit of bleach  and paintbrushes. As you paint the colours will fade one by one. For example our coral first turned pink, then orange, then white. Green would turn blue, then yellow, then white. A great way to learn colour mixing.
