First up, Ian has fallen in love with Tye Dyeing. We were in JoAnn’s a couple of weeks ago and I picked up a quick starter kit so I could “clean up” a couple of old white wash clothes. Ian helped me with that first batch, but he wanted to do more. So we got another kit and went to town on a couple of shirts. The end result was hilarious. I swear we did use the gloves that the kit provided, except there was only one pair, so sharing with Ian didn’t work out as well as I thought it would.
We ended up doing this little project on the day Jesse worked from home, so he joined in the fun. Between the three of us, we did three of Ian’s shirts, one of Jesse’s and one of my tanks that didn’t survive the first round. We ended up with a couple of great shirts and one that can be a little disturbing. The final shirt (the one Jesse and I are holding) ended up looking like we butchered someone in our basement. By the last shirt, all we had left was red and we wanted to use it. Ian had a blast splaying it around and we even got his hand prints on it (but they may be hard to find).
The boys are wearing their shirts (Jesse looks hilarious in his) and Ian is already asking when we can paint more clothes.
