Okay, this is a MUCH better post than the last, for dyeing t-shirts using the Sharpies/rubbing alcohol method.
The last post was just me finally getting off my duff and giving this Sharpie method a try, but with little to show for it.
Here's the real deal, folks:
Creating t-shirt dye designs with sharpies and rubbing alcohol is SO easy with amazing results!
I love how my new shirt turned out!
Here are the easy play-by-plays:
This started as a simple white tee [make sure it is 100% cotton or color will fade!] but with some colored Sharpies, a few design ideas, some rubbing alcohol and a dropper, it was transformed.
I drew right on the shirt with the sharpies. I knew they were going to bleed after dripping the rubbing alcohol, so I left some space in-between the horizontal lines.
All done with the Sharpies and ready for the rubbing alcohol
I love to see it transform as I drip the rubbing alcohol
Want to watch it as it transforms?
[much better video than last time, trust me]
After the rubbing alcohol has dried (doesn't take very long) throw your t-shirt into the dryer on hot for ~15 minutes to set the color.
I cut the t-shirt neckline for a more feminine look.
Gotta love how easy that is and how great it turned out! I'll be making more of these for sure.
