Bleaching jeans

I'm not sure if this is the place to put this, but I'm trying to learn how to bleach and distress jeans to make that "vintage" worn look.

I've been using a bleach pen for the creases in the jeans, but the fading part down the front, I use bleach on a sponge and wipe it down the front. It seems like I need to do it 3-4 times.

I remember spilling a drop of bleach on clothes years ago and it would show up right away. For some reason, the bleaching on the pant legs with the sponge is just not doing that.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Moved this to sewing, since it's more sewing related than upholstery.
They used to sell a product that does it for you, but it was discontinued it for some reason, however, I found someone that still sells it on Ebay. Pretty good price too, if you're interested. Here's the link:
