Project Instructions

 

Step 1 Pre-wash T-shirt without fabric softener. Do not dry.

 

Step 2 Cover work surface with plastic table cover. Lay out damp T-shirt on covered work surface.

Step 3 Decide where you want the center of bullseye to be on the fabric. Pinch fabric and pull up in tube shape.

Step 4 Place rubber band about 1" from the top, and continue banding every 2"-3" along length of fabric.

Step 5 Prepare dye following package instructions.

Step 6 Apply dye colors between banded sections: Yellow to center section, Fuchsia to middle section and Turquoise to outer section.

Step 7 Cover fabric with plastic table cover. Let set 6-8 hours.

Step 8 Rinse fabric in warm water until water runs clear. Remove rubber bands.

Step 9 Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of non-bleach laundry detergent. Wash and dry separately for the first few washes.

Step 10 Place shirt form inside T-shirt.

Step 11 Use Neon Green dimensional paint to paint a smiley face onto center section of shirt. Let dry.

 

Tips

Use a raised wire cooling rack to place fabric on to help avoid dye from pooling up and for more even dye coverage.
