Have you heard of reverse tie dye before? Stick around! I’ll show you three different techniques you can use for reverse tie dye too, so you can choose the look you like best. So easy!
– household bleach – any textiles – cardboard – metal clips – medium size container – tongs and gloves
First, working in a well-ventilated area, submerge the fabric in water. Next, put on gloves and pour bleach directly into a container.
Then add the folded fabric pieces to the bleach. With your gloves still on, or using tongs, remove the fabric from the bleach once you’re happy with the color change.
Working in a well-ventilated area outside, submerge the fabric in water. Wring out the excess water and fold into different designs.
Lay your item down on a towel outside and prepare it for the bleach. Pour bleach into a spray bottle. And spray bleach all over the textile or item you are reverse tie dyeing.
Like the other two methods, you can get your fabric item wet first. Put on some gloves and set the fabric item down on an old towel outside.
Start with the backsplash lip and paint a thin layer, working your way to the crevices, and then paint about an inch or two on the counter as well to make it easier for the next step.
