I was so excited to receive this awesome tie-dye kit from Tulip:
I was even more excited to find all of this goodness inside:
-Gloves to protect my hands
-Surface cover to protect my floor
-Bottles with dye powder
-Packets of dye powder.
I decided to try an unconventional technique that we shall call "Sprinkling" going forward. I promise I'll show you why... after the jump!
Start with a clean, dry, white tank top.
Wearing your gloves, mix a small amount of blue tulip dye powder with water in a mixing bowl.
Dip the bottom of the tank top into the dye. Lay out flat on the surface cover.
Place some dye powder in your dry palm.
Sprinkle the blue powder over the wet, dyed area. Let dry.
Check out this dreamy texture:
I love how spontaneous and unexpected the results were.
A big thank you to Tulip for sending me this fantastic tie-dye kit and inspiring this shirt! All of their products can be found at your local Michael's. You can also connect on twitter @ilovetocreate, facebook, and pinterest!
