Michelle's Guide To Tie-Dye

A tie-Dye kit

kit If you are a beginner to tie- dyeing, I suggest you buy a kit. This will include all supplies necessary and will allow you to create about 10 shirts. Kits such as the Jacquard Tie Dye Kit (pictured on the left) gives you the basics to begin the process of tie-dyeing. They can be purchased at your local convenience store such as Walmart or Target. They can also be found at craft stores. There are a few kits listed in the links in the sidebar.

Buying supplies seperately

suppliesHowever, if you prefer to buy the supplies separately, you can pick your colors and have longer lasting supplies. Here is what you will need:

  • Dye
  • Dye Bottles
  • T-shirts
  • Gloves
  • Trash Bag or Tarp
  • Rubber Bands
  • Soda Ash
  • Paper Towels

You can find these things at craft stores such as Michaels or Jo-Ann Fabrics. There are some suggested dyes in the sidebar. The rubber gloves and squirt bottles can be found at beauty supply stores also.
