Its time to tie dye! Lets get started
First thing first baby brother needs his safety goggles. Right?
Check - glad that's out of the way. Okay now on to set up
Open pretty kit and read instructions
add setting tablets to warm water and soak 24 hours.
WHAT?!!! Oops, I guess I should have read that last night. Oh well.
So Fun! We FINALLY get to touch the dye!
Picking our colors
Folding our shirts
Folding, folding, folding
Good job Noah!
Putting his shirt in the tie dye container
This is serious business.
Once the colors were added, I removed the shirt and placed it in a plastic bag to set over night
Then It was Eli's turn
Deep in thought
Once the tie dye sits over night, you take it out and rinse it until the water runs clear. Then you allow it to air dry. Here are the finished products.
Eli's "Folded" shirt
Noah's "folded" shirt
The bulls eye method (you tie it up like this, then dye it, you can also dye it directly in the plastic bag if you wish)
This was so much fun! Defiantly a several day project. There are apparently 4 different ways to tie a shirt. We have done two of the 4 ways so far. The Folded method & the bulls eye. The bulls eye gives the pattern that you are used to seeing tie dye in.
This will be something we repeat through the summer for sure!
