  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the time for neither the dye nor the shoes to dry.
  • 2
    Tape around the White rubber sole of the tennis shoes and put wadded old newspapers inside the shoes to protect the insides.
  • 3
    Mix 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup Petal Pink Rit Dye in a small bowl with hot water. Test color by dipping in a piece of paper towel. Add dye or water to darken or lighten color as appropriate till you get your desired shade.
  • 4
    Dip sponge brush into the dye; then dab on paper towels to remove excess dye. Paint the entire shoe all the way around and on the tongue of the shoe. Repeat on the second shoe.
  • 5
    Let dry either inside or outside in the sun. The sun will speed up the process. Remove the painter's tape. Rinse in the sink until the water runs clear, then let shoes dry.
