Here is an easy way to make a tie dye shirt using spray on fabric paint. You can use a stencil if you want. It you don’t have any stencils, trace a pattern on poster paper and carefully cut it out. Also see our new tie-dye shirt video with Katrina, Sloane and Melissa on how we made some tye dye shirts.
It is best if you don’t use too many colors, or keep going over the same spots. If you mix colors – especially ones across the color wheel – you will end up with muddy looking colors. Don’t overspray and allow the shirts time to dry. Use light color or white shirts for best results.
You can also take permanent marker and make outlines, add text, do freehand design, etc. Art is even cooler when you get to wear it!
