I have always wanted to dye
I'm such a procastinator.
But my motto is:
It's never too late!
To celebrate the last day of school this year
my kids and I finally tie dyed some T-Shirts.
I wish I had more photos,
but you will just have to trust me,
we did a good job :)
My daughter dyed
a white, lacy, sleeveless top
and a pair of bike shorts,
which were quite great buys from Target.
Then last week we dyed paper.
First using the food color + milk technique.
(We were supposed to use almond milk,
but I found it too pricey for our cow-milk drinking family.)
It is not my favorite technique.
The food coloring simply sank to the bottom of the tray.
Maybe next time I need to try the almond milk after all.
It just occurred to me ...
will my paper smell sour in a few days?
Anyway, the second technique we tried
was the nail polish + water technique.
Love this one!
Unfortunately I only found one bottle of nail polish in my vanity.
It's time to dig in the garage and go on a nail polish hunt!
In the end I used this technique
on a few pieces of paper
that were colored with food coloring.
