First, wash your hoodie to get rid of any residues. The dye works best on white or pale fabrics.
Cover your worktop in plastic sheeting.
Decide whether to dye the hoodie wet or dry. The dye spreads more if the fabric is wet, so it all depends on the effect youre going for. You can also lightly spray your garment with water as you work, so that the dye only spreads a little at a time.
Scrunch up the garment. Paint lines and dots here and there on the puckered fabric, using a wide brush. If the hoodie is damp, the dye will spread quite a bit, so leave some areas undyed if you dont want the whole garment to be coloured.
Switch dye colours if you like; re-scrunch the garment, and dot on the new colour.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 on the back of the hoodie. Then straighten out the hoodie to dry.
Once the fabric is dry, fix the dye with an iron set to cotton without steam for 5 minutes.*
Your new-look hoodie will then be safely machine washable at max. 40°C, but should be ironed inside out. Wash the hoodie separately the first few times after paint-dyeing it.
