How To Tie Dye Your LEGS

How To Tie Dye Your LEGS
I am about to show you how to tie dye your legs... or leggs really. Yeah, they're just stockings, but the result is still the same. I now have 3 different crazy pairs of tights that each were made from old clothes and food coloring. I do know that this red color looks like I got a sunburn or was in a bad fire, so you can stop saying so. This was an experiment, and so the black color that I wanted turned out red. I've fixed it, look: I first thought of tie dying tights when I learned that nylon could take acid dyes, the same type used to color wool. You will need: 1+ pack of Kool Aid in any color, mixing is fun. I tied up my nylons randomly into a big blob. Add your Kool Aid to a pot of water. I prepared a dye bath of water and Black Cherry Kool Aid. Add your tights to the dye, you can take them out when they have soaked up all the dye or when you are satisfied with the intensity of the color. Let them cool, and take off the string. You should see spots of undyed fabric under the string.
