Coloring with avocado-best-selling Tye dye vinyl method


Avocado is probably my favorite dish so far, so eating a lot of avocados in the last few weeks hasn’t been too hard! I also kept the skins (and stones for future use) in the freezer. Let’s try tye dye vinyl method for this.

Soaking avocado skin in water and heating- tye dye vinyl- step 1

The fabric was treated with soy milk and left for treatment for more than a month. The avocado skins were soaked in water and heated, and after 24 hours, the mushrooms were squeezed with a piece of muslin to produce a beautiful deep red tye dye vinyl.

I used avocado skins in a 1: 1 ratio to the weight of the fabric, but I saw that there was still a lot of dyeing potential in the dye bath, and then I dyed two more scarves.
