Creating a Tie Dye Bandana with Izink Pigment Inks

Good morning, Steph here with a fun kid-friendly project using Izink Pigment Inks.  All you need are assorted colors of Izink, a bandana, and your imagination.

Tie dying is one of things we used to do as kids, usually with tie dye specific products.  With tie dying on the brain, I figured why not try tie dying with Izink Pigment Inks and see what happens.

Begin by scrunching up the bandana, trying to make it as tightly wound as possible.

Starting with the lightest color, mix 5-6 drops with water in the Izink spray bottle and liberally spray the bandana – some areas heavier than other.  I also placed a few drops of color from the eye dropper directly on the bandana.  I didn’t quite get the result I was looking for so I spritzed it with more water to help dissolve it.

Mix up several more colors – Topaz and Iris –  and continue to add color to the bandana until you are satisfied with the look.

Be sure to flip the bandana over to add color to the reverse side or you will have large areas of white.  I decided to lightly spritz the reverse, letting some areas of white show.

Once dry, I reworked the bandana and twisted it into another shape so I could spritz some new colors – this time  Tomato and Tulip.  Loving the pink tint!

Once dried, this is the wonderful color combination I achieved.

I’m thinking this would be a great project with the kids this summer – pull out those t-shirts, hats and more.

And for another thought – make it for your friend!  Paulie loves it!
