Looking for a fun art project this summer? How about a tie-dye party for that upcoming birthday celebration? Tie-dye is easy to do, tons of fun, and extremely satisfying when you get your tie-dyed clothing item at the end. Plus, Oxlades has a range of easy-to-use and funky tie-dye kits, so finding these products is easy.
Most kits come with all the supplies you need for dying your fabrics. They include rubber gloves and bands, urea, soda ash, and instructions. Some people say string works better than rubber bands. The choice is up to you.
The dye kits typically come with easy-to-use squeeze bottles. You just need to add warm water (not hot) to activate them.
Some kits even come with an informative DVD rather than written instructions.
Most kits come with all the dye and apparatus you need, so all you need to do is provide the fabric. You can dye bed covers, tablecloths, shirts, tights, scarves, cushion covers – you name it!
You can use old items around the house or purchase fabric especially. The colour comes out best with 100% cotton material, though 50% polyester and 50% cotton will work fine as well. The dyes only bond to natural fabrics. You can also use rayon or silk.
The process of tie-dying is fairly straightforward. All you need is six basic steps:
Your kit will come with more exact instructions for the brand you’re using.
