Tie-dyed potholders decorated with rubber stamps using Textil Solid. Made from a gorgeous fabric quality with a trendy metallic ring for hanging. Sewn with a nylon thread; i.e. the stitching will not get dyed, but appears as part of the decoration.
How to do it
Dissolve 1kg fine salt in 10 liters of 30-60 degrees hot water. The warmer the water, the darker the colour. Turn off the heat.
Add 100ml ES Batik.
For smaller portions a pipette can be useful to suck up the right amount of Batik paint.
Dissolve 200g ES Batik fixing agent in a little warm water and pour it into the colour mixture.
Wet the fabric and put it immediately into the dye bath. The fabric must lie in the bath for 30 minutes and should be able to float freely. If you wish to make funny patterns, you can put rubber bands around or attach clothes pegs as shown.
Stir frequently to prevent stains.
When the 30 minutes have passed, remove the potholders from the pot.
Rinse in several changes of water.
When there is no longer much excess dye in the rinse water, machine wash the item at max. 60 degrees.
After drying the potholders can be decorated with Textile Color and a foam stencil brush.
If you wish you could mix two colours and make small blobs of colour with the tip of a brush.
