Ice Dye your sweater
Many people have tried the tie-dye trend to upcycle their old clothes into cool and colorful new items. Ice dyeing uses ice to apply textile paint to the clothes. This surprisingly easy technique creates a beautiful watercolor effect that is unique on every piece of clothing. So pull out your old textiles and have fun upgrading your wardrobe!
What you need
- Talens Art Creation Tie-dye set
- Textile (at least 50% cotton)
- Ice cubes
- Drip tray
- Something to cover the table and yourself
Cover your worktop and yourself. Make sure the textile your working with is damp, not wet.
Crumple the sweater completely and put it on the drip tray, don't forget the sleeves.
Place ice cubes on the crumpled-up sweater, don’t be careful, it must be completely covered with ice cubes.
Sprinkle the paint over the ice cubes. Use different colors together, do not forget the edges and do not be too careful with the paint here.
You have 2 options.
Option 1: Pastel look. Rinse the t-shirt until water is clear. Let the t-shirt dry. Then iron for 5 minutes to fixate. After that you can wash it on 40 degrees.
Option 2: Vibrant look. Let the t-shirt dry. Iron for 5 minutes to fixate. Then rinse under the tab until the water is clear. After that you can wash it on 40 degrees.
