This video is about DIY: Tie Dye: Rainbow swirl on a white T-Shirt!

Create a spiral. This is the most basic of the tie dye techniques and one of the most popular. To create a spiral on your shirt, first lay it flat on a counter top or table. Then, put your thumb and index finger in the center of the shirt. Begin moving them in a circular motion, spiraling the shirt around the center point.
When you have spiraled the entire shirt, use large rubber bands or strings to tie the shirt. You will need to create at least six sections, so use at least three rubber bands or strings over the shirt. It should be roughly round shaped, and have “pie slices” with the addition of the ties.
For a more intricate pattern, use more ties. Make sure that there is one center point at which they all cross though.
You can create multiple small spirals by spiraling your shirt in multiple smaller sections using the method from above.
If your shirt begins to form ridges, flatten them out. Your shirt should be spiraled, but it should stay flat on the table.

et up a work area. Tie dying, or any fabric dying, is a very messy business. To prevent unwanted dye accidents, set up a table with a plastic covering (like a plastic tablecloth or garbage bags) outside or away from any furniture or carpet.
Make sure that you have all your supplies gathered with you at your work area, so that you don’t have to run around with gloves on or worry about spilling anything in the process of moving things.
Consider using a cookie drying rack to elevate your shirt above your workstation, to give you the best access to every angle of it.
Be sure that you have extra paper towels or old rags handy to wipe up accidental spills.

Soak your shirt. Many dye packages come with a soda ash solution, which helps the dye to bond with the fabric of your shirt. Dissolve the soda ash solution into a bowl of water, and let your shirt soak for around twenty minutes.
If your dye did not come with soda ash, you can soak the shirt in lukewarm water. You can also choose to buy soda ash separate from your dye kit at a local craft store.
Do not use cold or hot water, as they will make the dyes less effective.
If you don’t want the dyes to spread very far on the shirt, don’t get it wet before adding the color. Dying a damp shirt helps the color to travel further, faster. So, if you want your color to be relatively isolated, dye it while it’s dry.[3]

Dye your shirt. Keep the dye in the bowls to do a layered dip tie dye, or carefully pour them into spray bottles. To do a dip dye, pick up your shirt and dunk it into the dye in different places. You can soak the whole shirt in a single color, and then dip the shirt (after ringing the initial color out) into other bowls of dye. Using a spray bottle to dye your shirt is easy; simply squirt the dye onto the desired area, layering colors if desired.
If you plan on layering colors, always apply your lightest ones first. Applying a light color over a dark one will only muddle them.
If you mix complementary colors - colors opposite each other on the color wheel - the places they meet will be a brownish hue. These include orange and blue, yellow and purple, and red and green.
Don’t feel obligated to dye the entire shirt. You can do a few small sections of tie dye and allow the original shirt color to show through on the rest of the area.
