Transform a plain tank top into a trendy ombre top!
The FashionArtProjects team sent me some free goodies, and I decided to use the Simply Spray for fabric to ombre a tank. I bought the tank top at a Humane Society thrift shop for less than a dollar. I wasn't a big fan of the beige color, but I did like the high-low hem.

  • How to dye an ombre. Diy Ombre - Step 1
    Step 1

    1. You either could lay the shirt down on a tarp, or do what I did, and hang it from a clothes-line. I chose this method so I could attack the front, back, and side seams all in one sitting. Make sure to have a tarp underneath if you are over deck, ect. because of the spray paint fall-off.

    2. I used all three colors they sent me. I first sprayed the Black. I spray more at the bottom than the top to create the ombre look. Next, I sprayed the Blue Jay color. I sprayed it over the black and continued the ombre. I noticed I had missed some spots with the blue, so I sprayed the Lavender on last.

    3. If you are happy with the color, just let dry and tada! The bottles say to wait 72 hours before washing, but I wanted mine to be more faded. I let mine dry for four hours, and then washed the tank in my sink with luke-warm water. I used a wee-bit of detergent and then put it in the dryer on low.

    4. The bright colors faded because I washed it too soon, but I really like it! It was so easy to do and now it is a faded, indigo-ombre tank! I can't wait to wear this top, and the fabric spray paint didn't make the shirt a crunchy texture.

Just would like to ask where you can buy this paint. Especially because t shirts are knit. This is such an awesome project.
You can usually find it at Walmart. Another cool project is to stretch a tank top over a bucket and runch it slightly. Then spray the paint on it and you have zebra stripes!
