A second hand tshirt found in an op shop that had some discoloured stains on it but was nearly new and good quality. It is very narrow and very long. So it's perfect for a nighty for my 5 year old.
First using a small brush gently brush the glue on being carful to keep it from going under the stencil
Once done let glue dry before continuing
Mix one third fixative with two thirds paint. Then add water to thin paint down.
Using a fork I twisted to get a spiral pattern
Until fully wound up
Then secure with rubber bands
Using a syringe if you have one add the paint in whatever patterns you wish to try. You could use a spoon or similar to spoon on the paint if you don't have a syringe.
I turned it over and did the other side the same
Add purple to the remaining white bits. Make sure you add enough paint to soak through otherwise you will end up with a lot of white.
Let it sit and soak in for 15min, then you can take off the rubber bands and open it up
Wow. How much better is that. Hang it up to dry. Then iron to set the colour. Put a thin cloth between iron and paint to stop scorching.
This is how the glue and stencils went. Subtle but cute
It'll make a good nighty and pink and purple tie dye romps all over white.
Too cute. Now I'm looking thru drawers to see what else I can tie die. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
