Rainbow-Drip Tie-Dye T-shirt
June 26, 2018
Tie dye season is upon us and here at Tie Dye Your Summer we are bursting at the seams with tie dye ideas using our Tulip One-Step Tie-Dyes! We just love the look of dripped dye and wanted to combine it with the love of all things RAINBOW! This tee is especially perfect if you have leftover dyes from previous tie-dye projects that you want to use up. It's so the perfect stash buster project to use up all that dye! Let us show you just how easy it is!
What you need:– Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye kit - Super Big (this kit contained the rainbow of colors I was going for)– Water pitcher– 100% cotton shirt
– Plastic surface cover or tablecloth or just tie dyed on the grass, cause there's really no harm in it and it's pretty much mess free!– Optional: Plastic bag or freezer paper to put inside shirt so it won't bleed to the back side NOTE: One of the important aspects of this process is that you DON'T wet your shirt before you begin. Most tie dye projects work best if you wet the shirt and can absorb the dye, but not this one.1) The easiest first step in all of crafting history...lay the dry shirt flat on the ground.
2) Next, fill up your bottles of dye or use your leftovers (day-old dye works great for this). Now start slowly dripping your color from the bottom in small and medium drops. You'll get a hand for it as you go.3) Do the next color in color order. In this example, we went in the following order up the shirt: Yellow, Orange, Fuchsia, Purple, Violet, Blue, Turquoise, Green, and Lime. You can use any color combo you want and in your own order.4) Cover in plastic, let it set for 6-8 hours, then rinse it out until the water runs clear. Put it in the washer on a light load with a small amount of soap and dry!The final result is so cool!!! Now, the dye might drip to the back and that's okay...it's tie dye after all. OK, technically, it's not "tie" dye, but tie dye sounds so much more cooler than just dye.
