  1. Where did you get the spray attachment? How long did it take to dry? Also did you just follow the water to dye ratio on the back or did you put all 12 bottles into those jars?

    1. Hi Christina,

      Thanks for the questions….. Here are the answers.

      *I used a paint sprayer from Home Depot.
      *Took a couple days to dry. One day each side in sunny sunny California.
      *Used water to dye ratio. You can test the color with a white paper towel for your desired shade.

      PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you rinse it until all the dye is set….

      Happy dying!!!
