FIREWORK EFFECT TIE DYE T-SHIRTS

FIREWORK EFFECT TIE DYE T-SHIRTS

As a child of the seventies, tie-dye was something we all learnt to do, usually using natural dyes like beetroot, red cabbage, turmeric and even onion skins to create the colours but this one is using a dye kit in bright colours for all the children to enjoy.

Tie-dye

You will need:
1 white t-shirt
1 one step tie dye kit (widely available on the High Street or online)
Water
Rubber bands
Rubber gloves to protect your hands from the dye

Method:
Lay your t-shirt on a flat surface and pinch through the two layers and twist and keep going until you have a tight swirl of fabric. Secure with a rubber band around the swirl on the outside. Now, using more rubber bands, fasten them crossways until it looks like a clock face, sectioned up.

Follow the colour mixing instructions, diluting the dye with water and shaking thoroughly to disperse the dye.

Now, add the colours one by one to the sections created by the elastic bands and don’t worry about crossover of colours. Soak the t-shirt in the multiple colours or create a couple of t-shirts with different colour combinations.

Tie-dye t-shirt

Set aside for 6-8 hours for the colour to take before rinsing under running cold water until it is clear. Then to remove any residual surface dye, pop into the washer on a 30 degree quick wash and a little detergent and ta-dah – your t-shirt is done!
