Can you let tie-dye sit too long?
Let the fabric sit for 2-24 hours. The longer you can let the fabric sit, the easier it will be to wash out loose dye from the fabric. The length of time you let the fabric sit is not overly critical. If you are in a hurry, let the fabric sit for as long as your deadline will allow.
Is it better to tie-dye wet or dry?
We generally recommend washing your fabric and leaving it damp before tie – dyeing, as the dye has an easier time saturating the fabric when it’s wet. Applying dye to dry fabric results in more color saturation but less uniform permeation throughout the fabric.
How much dye do you need to dye a shirt?
As a general guideline, one box of powder dye or 4 ounces of liquid dye will color one pound of dry weight fabric (about 3 yards of lightweight fabric or two adult large t-shirts). To obtain a lighter color, use less dye. For a darker or brighter color, double the amount of dye.
Can you tie dye a shirt twice?
It’s absolutely possible to tie – dye the same shirt twice, in fact, you can dye the same shirt as many times as you want. Once the dye has had time to set you can then rinse your shirt.
