I, sort of, managed to salvage the 2nd image I'm bleaching. It doesn't have the lighter spots the first one had but I'm going to mix a new bleach/alginate batch up tomorrow and try one more time for this one.
I'm also going to make a stencil for the first side and see if I can't clean that up any.
I'll keep you all posted~
...not that there is anyone really watching, but I can pretend, can't I? ^_^;
