Tie dye your face mask
We are in the middle of a pandemic and we have to stay safe. Wearing a face mask is one way to stay safe. But we don't like those boring white or blue face masks, so we came up with a fun idea to make your face mask a little prettier.
What you need
- Talens Art Creation Tie Dye set
- Mouth mask
- Elastic bands
- Plastic to cover the table
- Plastic gloves
It is important that the mouth masks you use should have at least 50% cotton. It should be washed without fabric softener before applying the paint.
This what you will need.
Wet the mouth mask and wring it really well so it’s damp. This way the paint will be absorbed in better.
Play with different size marbles. In the red/pink/orange combination we used 5 small marbles. Tie them into your mouth mask using elastic bands.
In the blue/turquoise/green combination we used 3 big marbles.
Apply the paint to the textile and don’t forget the back!
Let the paint sit for a couple of hours so it can be thoroughly absorbed.
Take of the elastic bands and marbles out and let the mask dry.
Iron the masks for 5 minutes to fixate the paint. Then rinse under the tab until the water is clear. After that you can wash it on 40 degrees.
Now you are ready to wear your own personalized mouth mask. Stay safe!
