What You'll Need for this super cool tie dye workshop is right below.

rubber bands
a recycled veggie can
Isopropyl alcohol (Walmart, Target, etc…)

Easy Tie Dye Steps

Guys this is so easy for almost any age and is much quicker than regular tie-dye. Open the window and pull up your chairs.
1. Place your can fabric over your can and position the top where you'd like the dye to go.
2. Secure it with a rubber band around the edge.
3. Work steady and have fun.  Using the sharpies, draw hearts, dots, lines, etc on the fabric. Fill your eyedropper with alcohol and begin dropping in the middle of the circle.
After your shirt is completely dry (alcohol is flammable, so don’t use heat on a damp shirt), set the colors by tumbling the shirt in a hot clothes dryer for ~15 minutes.

You can wear and wash your new shirt like other clothes now.

STUDIOI usually start with approx 10 - 15 drops and then see if it needs more. As the marker reacts to the alcohol, it begins to bleed or "dye". The colors will blend together and will dye up to the rubber band edge, best case scenario.
There is no wrong or right, so just have fun.
