Sharpie Tie Dye T-Shirts
Posted By Smockity Frocks On July 13, 2012 @ 6:16 am In Crafts | 18 Comments
It is like tie dye without the buckets of dye waiting to be spilled or sloshed.
NO MESS tied dye!
Everyone got a plain white t-shirt and a variety of Sharpies. We inserted old vinyl place mats into the shirts, and each child made a design using a series of dots.
We then took the shirts outside and sprayed them with rubbing alcohol. Did you know you can screw a standard spray bottle top onto a bottle of alcohol? EASY PEASY!
The alcohol makes the colors in the Sharpie dots run, giving the design a cool “firework” look.
*”Set” the shirts by putting them in the dryer on “high” for 15 minutes. Wash separately. We had a slight fading during the wash.
