Step 1: Materials List
Tulip Tie Dye Kit – Primary colors
Tulip surface cover or plastic trash bag (recommended big time!)
Rock salt and/or uniodized sea salt (In the past using iodized table salt lead to major fails. Don’t be me.)
Cotton canvas drop cloth
Star cookie cutter or template
Step 2: Wash It
Step 3: Prepare the Blue Dye
Step 4: Salt Resist Tie Dye the Shoes
Caution: I stuffed my shoes with plastic bags hoping the dye wouldn’t penetrate to the inside sole of the shoe. The dye got through anyway. I also think having a less than flat surface interfered with the salt resist technique. The salt resist didn’t come out as well on my shoes as it did on my flat test t shirt. I like the texture I got on my shoes but I wish it was a little more pronounced like on my test project.
Place the dyed shoes in a plastic bag and allow the color to cure. The directions say to leave it in the bag 4-6 hours. I left mine in the bag overnight.
