marco polo soulja boy Transforming a Boring Old Black T
Do you have a few boring old black t shirts that you are sick of? Here’s a way to transform them into “something else”. It’s sort of like tie dying, but using bleach to remove the dye, instead of adding dyes. It’s also a much quicker process, which I am sure “the have it nows” will appreciate!Step 1: Purloin Your Boring Old Shirt I have kidnapped an old black shirt from my son! You can also use boring old dark blue shirts for this transformation too! It is really cool! Be sure to use 100% cotton for this. on the t shirt and fix rubber bands around them. Make the rubber bands very tight and insert your marbles from both sides of the shirt as it makes a more interesting effect on the back and front. BE VERY CAREFUL, YOU ARE DEALING WITH BLEACH! Do not get bleach in your eyes or on your skin, accidental splashes rinse off immediately. Do not splash on your clothes as you will bleach them. Wear rubber gloves and old clothes (instead of old clothes you could wear a strategically adapted trash bag!) When you have mixed your bleach solution (about 1/3 bleach to 2/3rd cold tap water) place your bobbled, banded shirt into it and make sure it is completely submerged. This is the hard part, as depending on the dye used in the t shirt when it was manufactured, there is really no hard and fast rule as to how long you should leave the shirt soaking in the bleach. I suggest that after 10 minutes, check the shirt by looking to see if it looks less black, and if there is dye in the water. It’s not very scientific I’m afraid, but. It’s brown with black splodges! Now all I have to do is to tell my son what I have done with his shirt! Ooops! The last pictures in this step are of a couple of shirts I bleached last year. They were both black to start with, but the bleach has made them very different colours. They were tied in what they call “the flower fold”.
