I've been wanting to try marble dyeing for quite some time. I had some left over dye from my modern colors tie dye kit- click link to see.  So I broke out the shaving cream and got to work!  I love the way it turned out and can't wait to try it again.

I let is sit overnight 8-10 hours to batch.  It was very wet because its a thermal but if it were a tshirt I would wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it wet the whole time.

Then I rinsed with cold water and washed it with hot water and synthrapol. I dried it on hot too.
