If your food dyes don’t come from naturally derived sources, we say it’s better to keep them off your body! If you still have some around…then….
DO AN ART PROJECT!
1. Find your colors and add hot water to a container or sink.
2. Add vinegar or salt or any other mordant to make the dye stay on the fabric.
3. Dip the shirts in and let the fun begin!
We played around with different colors and techniques, but it gave us a definite hippy tie-dyed look! Totally ….
You can let the shirts sit in the dye anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. This was an experiment for us, so the results will come in soon!
And this is what our stomachs might look like when we drink the Kool-Aid… gross!
Use your old dyes on things that won’t die!
