Pretty sure it's still going to be on the day-glo side when it dries. I even added some green to the dye to tone it down because red wasn't doing it. Looks like I'm going to just dye it a chocolate brown or maybe bleach the color out of it. I'll wait to fully pass judgement until it dries.
Meanwhile I also dyed some other shirts and took pics of my process.

|Lint a plenty!|
|Melting the wax. Create a double boiler bu placing water in a pot and melting in a separate container.|
|Ready to pour? The red rubber is an oven mitt. It was a gift - I love it.|
