Tye dying finish product

  1. 1. By Kiarni
  2. 2. What you will need: • 100% (Percent) Cotton T-shirt • Rubber Bands • Buckets (4Minium) • 2 or more colours of fabric dye • Latex Gloves • Setting Agent
  3. 3. • Fill 1 bucket half way with hot water, then add 2 table spoons of setting agent to the bucket of hot water and stir until setting agent has dissolved.
  4. 4. • Use 2 more buckets and fill them with normal cold water. Add 1 table of one colour dye to each bucket of cold water and stir. (Try to use colours that will go together to avoid the colours turning brown)
  5. 5. • Lay shirt on a flat surface and decide where you want your design centre to be.
  6. 6. • Grab the part that you want the design to be, and tie a rubber band around the piece of fabric. (Make sure the rubber band is really tight to avoid the dye running.
  7. 7. • Continue step 5 to make your chosen design.
  8. 8. • Once finished with the rubber bands start dyeing. Place your T- shirt in one of the dye baths and let it soak for 20 minutes.
  9. 9. • Once the 20 minutes is up, add 2 cups of the setting agent to the dye bath with your t-shirt in it. And then let it soak for another 10 minutes. (The longer you let it soak, the more vibrant the colours will be)
  10. 10. • After 10 minutes is up, place the parts of the t- shirt that hasn’t been dyed into a different coloured dye bath, and let it soak for 20 minutes, before adding 2 cups of setting agent and stir, then let the shirt soak for 10 minutes.
  11. 11. • When you have finished dying your T-shirt, rinse the T-shirt until the water runs clear.
  12. 12. • Lay your T-Shirt on a flat surface and remove the rubber bands. After removing the rubber bands rinse the T-shirt again, to get any remaining dye out.
  13. 13. • Use a coat hanger, and hang your shirt up to let it dry. (Be careful some dye can still be in the shirt. So try to hang it outside or on concrete)
  14. 14. • Wallah! You have yourself a homemade Tie dyed T-shirt that looks amazballs.
