Alien Glow Tie-Dye Technique

You don’t need to be from another planet to make this fun shirt. Just add a glow paint head & black eyes to a spiral tie dye.

Step 1:

Dampen your shirt and fold it in half on your work surface.

Step 2:

On the fold and in the middle, start twisting your shirt into a spiral.

Step 3:

Wants securely in your spiral design, hold in place using rubber bands.

Step 4:

Take your Tulip One-Step dye in yellow and fill in the center of your bound spiral.

Step 5:

Go around it with the lime Tulip One-Step Tie Dye.

Step 6:

Now go around the lime with your darker green Tulip One-Step tie dye.

Step 7:

Flip your spiral over and fill in your design with black, leaving the middle green.

Step 8:

Place your shirt in a plastic bag and let it sit for 6-8 hours.  After it has set, rinse, wash and dry your shirt.

Step 9:

Make a alien face stencil from freezer paper and iron onto the center of your shirt.  Make sure to securely tape off your shirt with additional freezer paper.

Step 10:

Use Tulip ColorShot Fabric Color in glow to make your alien head design.  Spray an even coat first, then let it dry, then add an additional coat.

Step 11:

Once dry, peel back the freezer paper from the shirt.

Step 12:

Make two alien eye shapes from paper and trace them lightly with your pencil over the glow area.

Step 13:

Fill in the design using Tulip Soft Fabric Paint in black. Let dry.
