1. Mix the dye with water in the bottles according to package directions. The dyes are SUPER bright and rainbow, and we wanted ours to be a little softer, so we then squeezed some of the dye into a glass bowls and mixed it with additional water, about a 1 part dye to 3 part water ratio.
2. Think about how many colors you want (we used six) and how long your leash is (ours was six feet) to get an idea of how big each color section should be before you start dyeing. Ours were about 10″ each. Once you’re ready, put on the gloves included in the kit and lay out the protective plastic, and start dying the handle end of the leash first. Dip the rope into the bowl and leave it there for about one minute.
3. Remove from the dye and continue with the next color. The colors will blend together a bit where they touch, which makes for a perfect rainbow-y ombre look! TIP: It’s helpful to have a second person on hand to hold the already dyed section up so the colors don’t run/bleed too much.
4. Continue with each color until the whole thing is dyed! Let the color sit for 8 or more hours before washing thoroughly in the sink.
