Tie dying with food coloring is one of the cheaper way to create tie dye shirts. Tie dying has become a fun and safe activities for kids and adults of all ages for decades. Tie dye first became popular during the 1960’s. The processing of tie dying is a sequence of resists and dyes.

Resists is the process of creating areas on the material that you are not wanting to absorb the dye. This part of the process is usually achieved by wrapping a rubber band very tightly around the material. The dye step can be simple, just dipping the shirt in dye, or complicated with multiple steps using numerous dyes.
