I was thinking about doing this with my son’s kindergarten class. I know the shirts have to be washed afterwards to stop the processing. If I throw the tshirts in a black garbage bag will this stop the processing while I’m driving home to wash them, or will the processing continue and the designs be affected by the wrinkling of the shirts from being in the bag?

Many thanks for the fun activity suggestion!

I know certain dyes are not recommended for baby items due to them leaking color more rapidly. Also, how long does the dye last through washes before fading?

The short form: paint the dye onto the fabric, put objects on the fabric to block the sun, then set the fabric in the sun and the color will appear. That’s it.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

They’re so heavy and dense they would be perfect for blocking the sun, and weighing down the fabric too.

I’d make a wall-hanging on a large piece of cloth, like maybe a silverware pattern (knives, forks and spoons scattered on the cloth) to hang in the kitchen.

Planning another activity while it dries/exposes would be great.

We used Jacquard dyes from Dharma Trading Company. It was fun and my husband wears the ties to church sometimes, if you want to see them.
