FYI The Jaquard Tie Dye Kits are on page 473 in the Sax catalog. There is
also a nice video on tie dye as well. For those who want an easier method
of tie dye, the tie dye cords are listed on the same page. Hope this helps.

Subject: RE: art camp
My first project with an art camp is always rainbow tie dye with the
Jacquard dyes and soda ash. The kids think it is cool and they learn about
caring for fibers, dying fiber and color combinations. Wrap the tables with
newspaper and saran wrap, set up color stations with the dye in squirt
bottles and let the students rotate around the tables after they have wound
their shirts around clothespins and tied in rubber bands. I've done this
with K and up - the K'ers just need help with the bands but can choose and
do their own colors under close supervision.
The students love wearing their shirts to camp and pointing out the really
good ones. Buy the rainbow tie-dye book that is published by Jacquard if
you don't have it.
