Tape-Dyed Top

I decided to try this fun tape-dying craft after I spilled something on my top and couldn't fully get the stain out. It's one of my best fitting tanks so I didn't want to throw it out! With a bit of tape and fabric paint, I had an afternoon of fun turn into a cute new top.

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 top

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Start by fitting your top onto your piece of cardboard.
  2. Lay down your masking tape diagonally one way, evenly spaced, starting from the top corner of your shirt.
  3. Now criss-cross over the tape the other way.

  5. Using very gentle dabbing motions with your brush, paint the bare areas of the shirt, and just over the edges of the tape.
  6. Leave your shirt to dry overnight.

  8. Peel off the tape strips one by one, starting from the top most layer.
  9. If there are little splashes of unwanted fabric colour, use the white paint to cover them up.

I submitted all the photos in full colour so I'm not sure what happened... But it's kind of cool to see it dull before it hits the paint. ;)

That was a strange error. We did some color correction to some of the photos and those were the ones that showed up in black and white. They should appear normally now.

Thanks for a great craft. I may use this one myself as I always get stains.

Haha! Hi, Jess! It is okay to leave it up. People in the real world know me as a crazy person, it was bound to start showing up online. TOTALLY not a big deal ;)

I'm happy you'll try this! I thought I was -really- good at getting any stain out, but I was proved wrong, and this dying is a keeper :)
