Jennifer Louw Taylor was out here this last week and as a professional, showed us some new techniques. It was all quite exciting, and as you can see, the results were pretty good. Jenn tied the heart onesie and Miriam dyed it. Lucky Amaya C. should be sporting it soon. I'm newly inspired to hoard white clothing.
Bekah said I should post some of the great tips Jenn gave us.
- with the colors cobalt, turquoise, lemon yellow, fuchsia red, fire red and new black we can make different colors. Jenn only buys these colors and then she mixes them up. lemon yellow is the one that she uses the most to mix with other colors.
- for every 20oz bottles she puts 2 tablespoons of dye. For the black she puts 1 tablespoon of salt along with the dye.
- If you plan on re-using the dye then you should refrigerate it.
- She doesn't rinse them out first like we do. Instead she fills up the washer with hot water and puts in the shirts without the rubber bands. She agitates it for 30 sec and then she drains the water out. She then runs them all in a hot+cold cycle with 4 tablespoons of the special soap.
