I L O V E tie dye…but it takes a long time and it is very messy!
S T E P S:
1: make a design on your t-shirt with permanent markers
2: drip rubbing alcohol over design we used a pencil eraser and a chop stick…an actual eye dropper would be great or even a spray bottle!
3: Let dry for about 30 minutes.
We did some experiments.
We were trying to decide what technique gave the best tie dye effect:
Experiment #1: Exhibit A- Dots v. Exhibit B-Lines:
I like lines better! It looks more like tie dye!
Experiment #2: Flat v. Ribbed Shirt
flat t-shirt – dot technique ribbed tank top- line technique
Results: Using the line technique and a flat t-shirt work best for normal tie dye effect!
happy crafting 🙂
