Supplies:

  • tie dye kit (dye, gloves, rubber bands)
  • white t-shirt
  • plastic gallon bag
  • plastic (to cover work surface)
  • bucket, optional
tie dye kit
 

Steps:

  1. You have two options to get started. If you prewash your shirt, you will want to leave it wet and work with it straight out of the washer. If your shirt is already dry you will want to get it wet and wring out any excess water. NOTE: My shirts were dry so I had a bucket of water that I dunked each shirt into.
  2. soak shirt
     
    wring out water
     
  3. Lay the shirt out flat. Then grab hold of the center of the shirt and pull it up, letting the shirt drape from that point.

  7. Now apply color to each section of the shirt. Turn the shirt to make sure that all parts are saturated.
  8. add dye 1
     
    add dye 4
     
    all sections dyed
     
  9. Place the shirt into a gallon bag and zip it shut. Allow the dye to set for a minimum of 6-8 hours. The longer it sets, the more vibrant the colors will be.
