It's even more vibrant IRL - the green is very very vibrant, and the color distinction quite crisp.<br>
I soaked the tied shirt in soda-ash (it was folded in half lengthwise, and spiralled toward the fold starting near the fold at belly-button level) and then let it dry completely before putting the dye on - I wanted near-total color saturation. I had the color scheme planned out, but really had no clue where the colors would end up on the shirt, yk? And I ended up with these gorgeous encircling bands of blue!<br>
The shirt itself is a Bolivian co-op shirt from Dharma - they're selling them VERY cheap so they can move them fast to provide work for the co-op.....in case any of you wanted to try it yourself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

That is awesome, just gorgeous. And you are the model, correct? I have long wondered what an 'invisible chicken' looks like. Beautiful.

You know you want to....everybody's doing it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mischievous.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="mischief"><br>
It really is fun - just try it out on some old t-shirts or diapers to practice first, until you get the hang of things! I'll have to get our dipes washed & post pics of those next.

That turned out very nice, and with a hint of heart shape in the top of the circles too.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
