TULIP TIE DYE LAMP SHADE
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 'Tulip' Tie Dye Kit
- Plastic sheet
- Plastic gloves
- Cling wrap
Step 1 - Before you start tie dyeing, make sure to wash your fabric item to remove the sizing. Then grab your damp fabric directly from the washer and prep it for dyeing.
Fold, twist and bind your fabric according to your chosen tie-dye technique. We chose to do an ombre effect with 3 colours: blue, green and yellow.
Step 2 - To prep your fabric wrap the elastic bands around the fabric creating 3 separate sections.
Step 3- Once your fabric is secured, it's time to mix your Tulip dyes! Simply add water and shake the dye bottles until all of the dye is mixed. Lay out large plastic sheet to protect the surface you are working on and put on the plastic gloves.
Step 4 - Squeeze dye onto different sections of your bound fabric, as we want to create an ombre look we did the yellow first, followed by the green and blue. You might need to rotate and/or flip your fabric as you are applying dye to make sure you cover all sections.
Step 5 - Cover your tie dyed fabric in plastic to keep damp while the dye sets. Let it set for 6 to 8 hours or longer for brightest colours. Follow the tie-dye instructions included in your kit for laundering.
Step 6- Once your fabric is washed and dry, place onto your lamp shade and enjoy your hand made creation!
