What’s a boy to do when he needs new t-shirts but doesn’t want the same boring thing that everyone else is wearing?
Tie-dye his own, of course!
Forrest chose two crumple tie-dye patterns and a spiral in a flame-like colourway.
Watch below to see how a 12-year-old tie-dyes!
He really likes the tie-dye spiral, although says the red dye came out of the bottle a little too fast and so made the centre of the spiral too red. He’s completely right, I’ve ordered bottles with smaller holes because the ones I bought recently are hard to control. He’s also impressed with the green/yellow crumple tie-dye technique, it turned out just as he intended.
He’s a bit ambivalent about the crumple tie-dye with black. He didn’t like the way the black turned out, and says next time he would crumple it tighter or spray the black instead.
It’s all learning!
