This week the Pioneer decided to teach you all how to tie-dye clothing items of your choice . It can be a new and creative way to add a little something new to your wardrobe! Tie-Dying is always a fun and a new exciting way to express yourself . You can be so creative with it and you’re never going to have your items matching anyone else’s!
What You’ll Need :
- Tie Dye Kit (available at Michael’s, Jo-Anne’s, or any craft store)
- Rubber Bands
- Rubber or Latex gloves
Step 1 : Make sure you have a nice clean area to work in . Make sure nothing is around that you could accidentally stain! Place a trash bag or some base between your shirt and work space to prevent staining your surface .
Step 2 : Pick a shirt you want to use . Then you want to RINSE it with soap and water .
Step 2 : Make your shirt into a tight twist and apply rubber bands to the spots you wish to color! Or tie the shirt, with rubber bands, into sections that you want to color.
Step 3 : Apply color to the spots you sectioned off with rubber bands.
Step 4 : Once you’ve applied the color , put the shirt in a bag . You want to keep the shirt moist , it should still be wet from rinsing it with soap and water in step 3! Let the shirt sit for 4-24 hours (depending how bright you want the colors to be ).
Step 5 : Remove the rubber bands ( with gloves) after you let the shirt sit for the desired time , and give it a wash! Make sure to was it alone so the dyes won’t ruin other items of clothing.
Step 6 : After you have washed it, hang it out to dry or machine dry it on a low setting.
