These tights turned out to be quite simple. Just a dunk of color here, a brush stroke of color there and ... tada! Insta-fashion!!
Here's the tutorial, friends.
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.
Dunk bottom 1/3 in the yellow/green.
Dunk middle 1/3 in the fuchsia.
Dunk top 1/3 in purple.
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!
