[teacherartexchange] I need suggestions for fabric dye and tie-dye


Date: Tue Dec 18 2007 - 06:04:19 PST

I've been told that in order to prepare for field day at my school, it is
tradition for the art classes to tie-dye T-shirts for the kids to wear.
All the dye is supposed to be ordered by me - the only problem is I know
very little about it. Does anyone have recommendations of child-safe
dyes? I'd like them to be of decent quality, but I think the deciding
factor is going to be cost, since I have to have enough for 600 shirts.
Where can I buy in bulk?

Also, does anyone have any tie-dye tips? I know I'm not allowed to use
rubber bands with them, so I'm kind of at a loss for how to do this.

Ugh...the idea of tie-dying 600 shirts in one day is making me break out
in cold sweat.
