Re: OK... Let's see all your dyed bumGenius's and your methods.. in ONE thread!

Wow, I would have never thought of trying this. I have 4 BG that are plain white and I would LOVE to turn them a pretty color.

So, as far as the Coolaid goes, are there any specific colors that come out better than others? I see a lot of red and orange, but what about blue or green? I havn't had Coolaid since I was a kid, so I don't know what flavor (color) options they have, but I just want to know ahead of time if some should be avoided.

Thanks!

Another question,...

You totally submerge the diaper in the water, correct?

Its difficult to tell from some of these pictures, but it looks like the insides of some are still white. Im wondering if maybe I am supposed to only get the color on the outside and how I would do that.

You submerge the whole diaper, the insides don't take the color and wash out in your rinse. HTH!

Wow, how awesome! I'm excited to try this tonight and see what I come up with.

Kira~ Is there any certain way you got that tye-dye appearance? I know you said rubber bands, but did you do anything else special to it? I love tye-dye, but I've never done it before and I'm afraid I'm going to make a terrible mess when I attempt it (lol).

So how do you get the elastic parts to take the color? Mine looks like it did until I stretch it and then there are a bunch of white blotches where the elastic bunched. And I have a couple of spots where it is lighter (dime-sized). What did I do wrong?
