Here are links to those posts. Tie dye dress second try. ... First tie dye dress saved!
I don't want to spend the time to do that AND that would mean making up 3 separate pots of dye because once I got a color I liked, I would want to save that color. Which would mean I would need 3 pots AND I only own one dye pot. I really don't want to use my cooking pots for this.
So, I forge ahead with my method of keeping a bit of color #1 when mixing in color #2.
When dye bath #2 is ready, this time I dipped the lower 2/3's of the shirt, swished it around for 5 or so minutes and squeezed it really well, again.
Just the lower third got dipped this time. This means the middle section was dipped once and the bottom part twice, which is perfect since it is supposed to be the darkest.
I should have stirred the dye around more before putting the shirt into the dye. Some of the granules were not dissolved yet and this is what happens. Live and learn!
I WILL do another one of these.
