BZR SPRAY DYE TECHNIQUE

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
• White tee or other cotton item
• Detergent
• Disposable gloves
Soda ash
• 2-3 fiber reactive procion dyes
• Small spray bottle

STEP #1:  WASH YOUR ITEM IN HOT WATER AND DETERGENT.
I use Dharma’s detergent or Synthrapol but a household detergent will do the trick.

STEP #2:  CREATE A SODA ASH SOLUTION AND SOAK GARMENT.
You’ll want to use gloves from here on out. Create a soda ash solution of 1 gallon water and ½ cup soda ash. Soak your garments for at least 30 mins. After it soaks, take it out and give it a good squeeze.

TIP!  You can store the soda ash solution to reuse until its gone!

STEP #3:  ADD DYE TO A SPRAY BOTTLE.
Dissolve a little bit of dye and water in a spray bottle. The amount of dye depends on the shade you want and how much water you're using in your bottle (ratio)…. But roughly a teaspoon per ounce of water.

STEP #4:  SCRUNCH GARMENT IN TO CONTAINER.
Scrunch your garment into a rough pancake shape or however you want. Don’t scrunch it too much or else you wont get much dye coverage.

STEP #5:  SPRAY AWAY!
Flip it over and spray the other side another color! Do as you wish.

STEP #6:  LET THE GARMENT CURE.
Place the garment on a flat surface and leave it to “cure” for 24 hours. Then rinse out with cold water and do a final machine wash with hot water and detergent. Voila!
