Using Elmer's Blue Gel glue as a dye resist is one of my favorite dyeing techniques. It's fast, inexpensive and there are no limits to what you can write or draw on fabric. Since its almost St. Patrick's Day, I thought it would be perfect to create a ''lucky'' shirt to wear and dye it in one of my favorite Rit Dye greens: Kelly Green.
RIT DYE:If you use 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup white vinegar the first wash, it will set the colors so they won’t fade or bleed during follow up washes. You can do this with red shirts, and new jeans as well. I usually dye several things (usually onsies) the same color and then wash each color on an extra small load by themselves for the first wash
