Too much sugar may not be good for the teeth, but it sure can make a T-shirt look sweet. In this tinting project, granulated sugar is used to absorb the dye, leaving behind a spiffy dappled effect. As with other projects that involve spraying permanent dye, you may want to work outside. Dampen a 100 percent cotton white shirt and lay it flat on layered newspaper. Have your child cover the front of the shirt with small piles of sugar. Mix cold-water dye, such as Dylon Cold Water Dye for Fabrics and Crafts, according to package directions and pour it into a spray bottle. Wearing goggles and plastic gloves, practice spraying the newspaper until you can apply the color evenly. Now spray the shirt thoroughly with the dye, taking care not to blow the sugar off the fabric. Allow the shirt to dry completely, then rinse it in cold water to dissolve the sugar.

May I make a suggestion though to those of you who are going to try this?
Don't put newspaper under a wet t-shirt, the ink in the newspaper will ruin it, instead use wax paper or freezer paper.~~ Dee ~~
