I found a tie dye kit for $6 at cheap shop a few weeks ago, and bought a second kit yesterday so I could decant the dye and mix my own colours. The kit comes with only 3 colours - labelled as fushia, yellow and turquoise. I know they should blend together as they soak into the fabric, but I wanted a bit more control over the colous.
I decented the powdered dye into some other containers, then mixed my own shades of green, orange and purple. I only half filled the bottles and am amazed how much dye I still have. The squeezy drip bottles actually work really well, with hardly any mess - unlike the spray dye I used a few months back, which necessitated the use of a cardboard box " spray booth" and did not spray at an even rate ( but I do love the range of colours,and the scarves and necklaces I made with the dyes!)
I had overlocked the edges of some white fabric ready to make some scarves, and also had 2 white t shirts bought on sale at Rivers a while back. All received the colour treatment!
Now I just have to wait - probably until tomorrow- for the dye to soak in. I still have plenty of mixed ( water added & ready to use) and powdered dye left, wondering what else I can colour?
