The socks should be washed at least once and damp before you begin, so that the paint can properly adhere.
Protect your table with plastic and wear gloves.
Drip, spatter or brush paint here and there on the socks. Because the fabric is damp, the paint will spread and colours applied near one another may flow together and create new shades.
Cover the socks with plastic and let dry for 24 hours.
Rinse the socks, then wash in the washing machine at 30°C and iron inside out. Wash the socks separately the first few times after painting or dyeing.
The kids’ white socks may be looking a little grey and dull, but you can fix that with fabric paint! With our tie-dye junior kit for ages 8 and up, the kids can dye their clothes. We recommend having an adult help. Fabric paint can be used to dye light cotton textiles. Follow the different techniques in the instructions to create cool effects on everything from hoodies to socks.
