Pre-wash your garment according to your dye’s instructions. We chose to skip dipping our T-shirt in soda ash before applying the dye as we wanted the finished piece to look slightly washed out.
Scrunch up your garment randomly and place it on a rack on top of the bucket or tub. If you want, you can tie it up to create a tie dye effect. Cover your garment with ice. We used crushed ice in order to achieve the chalk effect.
Start sprinkling the fabric dye on top of the ice. Use pastel coloured dye for the chalk-inspired look. The ice melting process will decide on the final pattern. All the parts that aren’t covered with ice or dye will stay white, and the colours on the ice will be darker and more vibrant. Let the ice melt. Put your rubber gloves on and remove the garment from the rack. Place it in the sink and rinse as much of the dye out of the garment as you can.
Place your garment in the washing machine on a gentle cycle and leave it to dry. Lana Red never leaves her house without her red lipstick and always wears dresses or skirts. And although she loves to!bake she’s the worst chef in the world, leaving her boyfriend to do the cooking – unless it’s a!bowl of cocopu"s. www.lanaredstudio.com
