DIY TIEDYE DENIM JACKET

I was admiring UNIF’s Tie dye Moto Jacket but there was no way I would want to spend that much so I combined my love for Tie Dye with my love for denim and created this amazing Tie Dye Jacket.


What you will need:
.Denim Jacket
.Bleach
.Rubber Bands
.Fabric Dye
.Scissors
.Plastic Cups
.A Paint Brush
.Bucket
.Rubber Gloves
.Garbage Back
.Salt

If you haven’t pre-washed your jacket I recommend doing so.
Start Binding the Jacket with your rubber bands I recommend using thicker ones as they will create a better look on your jacket.



Pour 3 quarts of bleach and 3 quarts of water into a bucket or large plastic container. 
Use some rubber gloves and place your jacket into the bucket.
You may need to add something on top to way it down.


You may need to leave this all day depending on the colour you want. I wanted mine almost white so I left mine overnight.
If you wish to stop now you can.


Once you have your desired colour take it our of the bleach, snip of the rubber bands and rinse under cold water.
Then place it in your washing machine and wash. You may need to do this a couple of times to get the bleach smell out.

Use the directions on your fabric dye to mix. I used plastic cups to separate my colours. 
I didn’t have access to soda ash so I used salt as alternative and mixed it in with the colours.
I also had a cup of water to wash the brush in between dipping in the dye.


Take a relatively large paintbrush and start painting on your dye.


Make sure you get all the awkward spots like underneath the collar and the arms.  


The longer you leave it the brighter the colours will be.
Once you have left it out for a few hours rinse it under cold water until it runs clear and then put it in the washing machine on a rinse and spin.
