  • How to make a pair of tights / pantyhose. Multi Colored Tights - Step 1
    Step 1

    Here's the recipe for the 3 colors I mixed:
    2Tbs Yellow + 1/4 tsp Kelly Green + 2 c. Hot Water
    1tsp Fuchsia + 2 c. Hot Water
    1 tsp Purple + 2 c. Hot Water
    1/2 c. Black (undiluted in small separate container)

    These tights are a nylon/spandex blend. If you try it with a cotton blend, then dissolve about a 1/4 cup of salt in each color. This maximizes color retention after washing.

    Try to flatten the tights as best you can in a glass dish and brush with the undiluted black in a few random places.

    Cover this dish with plastic wrap and nuke on HIGH in the microwave to set the dye.

    Wash 'em and wear 'em.

    VOILA!! You're done!

I'm guessing the tights need to be white?
