You have to add water to each of the dyes in order to use them. Keep in mind that if you mix them they are best if used within 24 hours of mixing. If you store them they will lose some of their potency and may not “stay” as well in the fabric. The instructions show you several different kinds of tie dye techniques depending on the look you are going for. I decided to make an all purple infinity scarf with a fan tie dye pattern. The only things I had to supply was a way to wet down the scarf before starting, a cookie sheet to contain the mess and a large gallon sized bag. You wet down the material before hand and wring it out. Then you start folding and tying it in your desired pattern. Once that is done, make sure you wear your gloves, and you can start dying the material. After dying it has to set for 24 hours in the gallon size bag before you hand wash and dry it.
