    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    Tie a piece of cotton cord around the chest area of the T-shirt and wind it around several times. Tie a tight knot at the end to secure the cotton cord. The area with the tied-on cotton cord will appear the lightest after the tie-dyeing process.
    Guide step %d
    Pour 5 liters of 30-60°C hot water in a tub with 500g fine household salt.
    Guide step %d
    Wear plastic gloves and begin the dyeing with the lightest of the chosen colours using the dip'n dye technique. Dissolve half a bottle of fabric dye (50ml) and 100g fixing agent. Read more about the mixing ratio on the fabric dye package – eg. if large quantities of fabric and colour need to be adjusted. NB: Use several tubs as all the colours may be prepared in advance allowing the process to run smoothly.
    Guide step %d
    Gently dip the T-shirt up and down in the dye bath for 5-10 minutes - depending on the desired colour intensity.
    Guide step %d
    Now dip the T-shirt in the tub with the next darkest colour. Continue this procedure with a colour change to a darker shade each time.
    Guide step %d
    Rinse the T-shirt after the last dye bath in clean, lukewarm water. Change the rinsing water two or three times, remove the cotton cords and rinse one last time.

    A TIP
    Half a bottle of fabric dye (50 ml) in 5 liters of water is sufficient for fully dyeing two T-shirts. This amount, however, is sufficient for dyeing approx. 8 T-shirts in the same solution when using the dip'n dye technique.
