Project Video: 

Project Materials:

  • Tulip Tie Dye Kit (using purple, turquoise and pink)
  • Shaving Cream
  • Tin or plastic pan
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Canvas
  • Canvas shoes
  • Gloves
  • Paper plates
  • Painters tape
  • Plastic disposable table cloth
  • Cardboard tube

Shaving Cream Shoes & Canvas Project Instructions:

  1. Fill your pan with shaving cream. 
  2. Add water to tie-dye bottles and shake over a trash can until all the dye powder is dissolved.
  3. Dip your canvas shoe, or canvas into the shaving cream tie-dye (for the shoe make sure you tape the bottom edges if you want that to stay white and roll from side to side in the shaving cream to ensure dye covers all areas wanted). 
  4. Pull your shoe or canvas out of the shaving cream and let dry for 2 hours. 
  5. Rinse off with cold water and see your finished product!

Shibori Tie Dye Shirt Technique:

  1. Lay out your plastic table cloth. Optional: Pan underneath for ease of moving your creation later. 
  2. Wrap your shirt around your cardboard tube and scrunch down as tight as you can get it. It's okay if this isn't centered on the tube. 
  3. Using 2 rubber bands, tie around the shirt/cardboard tube to keep in place. 
  4. Mix your desired dye colors. Add your 3 colors in sections, make sure the shirt is completely saturated with little white left. 
  5. Let sit for 6 hours. 
  6. Remove the shirt from the cardboard tube and set out to dry another 2 hours. 
  7. Rinse with cold water and allow to sit for an additional 2 hours before washing.
