HOW TO TIE DYE WITH ICE
ADULTS, this will be your new FAVORITE tie dye technique! TRUST US - not only is it the EASIEST and FASTEST tie dye technique, but it’s a lot less messy (in our opinion) and creates a beautiful tie dye effect! Think “watercolor”! For this tie dye technique, you will use powder dye and not liquid dye which can get all over everything and stains immediately.
Once the ice melts, you may be surprised by the colors that appear! Dye powder is made up with several different pigments mixed to make one color and these hidden pigments come out when the powder is sprinkled on the ice…like dots of blue when using purple powder! If you prefer a more muted tie dye, you can add more ice and wash your item right away BUT if you like your tie dye bright, then let it sit up to 24 hours before washing.
Have fun experimenting with Ice Tie Dye and make sure to take a picture of you and your ice tie dyed item! If you share it on Instagram, be sure to tag @bumpclubandbeyond and #campbeyond!
