School Holiday Tie-dye

Tie-dye Tie-dyeing is a great school holiday activity to do with the kids.  I was given a couple of kits years ago which were so easy to use.  Once they were finished with I thought I’d just buy all the ingredients myself to make it a lot cheaper.  Our first experiment was a mini disaster as I forgot to soak the shirts in soda ash solution first, so we ended up with pastel designs.  The kids were still happy but I wasn’t going to make that mistake again.  I ordered my supplies from Batik Oetoro. I got 50g tubs of powdered dye in the primary colours and a big bag of soda ash, so I’m set for a while now.  This time we got it right and everyone was extremely pleased with the results.
