Step 1 Prepare Your Spin Art Tie-Dye Station
Assemble the Spin Art Tie-Dye Studio according to packaging instructions. Cover your workstation with a protective surface cover.
Prewash the fabric that you’ll be using for this tie-dye project. Fold and bind the damp fabric as desired— Oh Yay Studio used the crumple technique for their matching tie-dye overalls! Remove the lid from the spinner, place your project in the basket, and replace the lid.
Open the dye packets by cutting the corner of each packet at an angle. Use a pipette to suction up the dye powder, then turn the pipette upside down so dye collects at the base. The Spin Art Tie-Dye Studio includes 3 pipettes, so use one pipette per dye color. Fill the included bottle with water.
Step 2 Spin and add dye
Turn the knob on the spinner lid to activate! Spin manually a few times to build momentum and turn the knob to reactivate spinning as needed. While your project is spinning, use pipettes to apply dye through any of the openings in the lid. Multiple lid openings make this tie-dye kit great for group usage!
Continue spinning and applying dye until desired color distribution is achieved. You can stop the spinner and remove the lid to check color distribution as desired. Otherwise, enjoy the spin art process and see your surprise colors at the end!
Step 3 Spin and add water
After the dye powder has been applied, slowly pour water into the openings while spinning to blend the colors. Apply half of the bottle of water to each side of your project to the dissolve dye powder. More water can be used to blend colors further.
Step 4 Flip and repeat
Open the lid, flip your project over, and repeat on the other side. Once complete, remove the lid to reveal your surprise spin art color combinations! Take your project out of the spinner and rinse its components, then repeat this process to create a second set of tie-dye overalls.
Step 5 Wrap and let set
Once you’ve finished both spin art tie-dye overalls, place your dyed fabrics into a sealable plastic bag or cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dyes to set for 6-8 hours.
Step 6 Reveal!
After the dyes have set, rinse, wash in cool water with a little laundry detergent, and dry. Your matching spin art tie-dye overalls are ready to wear!
