Project Instructions

Step 1 Wash shirt in cold water without fabric softener. Dry and press smooth.

Step 2 Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth.

Step 3 Wearing protective gloves, prepare dye as instructed.

Step 4 Pour each color of dye into its own small plastic container.

Step 5 Dip wide bristle brush into the green dye (or other color you choose) and make wide sweeps across T-shirt, half circles, etc. as desired.

Step 6 Rinse out dye from brush and dip into the orange dye. Continue brushing loose, sweeping strokes.

Step 7 Rinse brush again and continue with the fuchsia and then turquoise.

Step 8 Pour small amount of turquoise dye into the squeeze bottle with fine tip.

Step 9 Squeeze bottle over shirt, making fine, free form lines over colors.

Step 10 Allow dye to set on T-shirt for 1-2 hours. Carefully turn over to reverse side and repeat the free form brush strokes and fine lines with the squeeze bottle.

Step 11 Cover shirt with plastic tablecloth and let sit 6-8 hours.

Step 12 Rinse in cold water until water runs clear. Machine wash and dry as directed.

Tips

Instead of a small-tip squeeze bottle, use a liner paintbrush to achieve the fine lines effects.
