If you've ever watched a horror movie, zombie flick, or just love true crime and wondered what it would look like to walk off the set of a film or reenactment then I've got the shirts for you!! Whether you're looking for the perfect creeptacular Mother's Day gift for your spooky mom or just want unconventional matching shirts for you and your love these are EXACTLY what you need!
These "blood" splatter t-shirts are a Gildan brand white, heavy duty cotton with crew neck. They are hand washed in natural laundry soap then left to dry until damp and the black Rit Dye is applied in the "crumple" method and left to dry for at least 4 hours before being rinsed until all the excess dye is removed. Once dry I then slice them up at random to make it looks as though you've faced a hoard of zombies or Freddy Krueger himself. Once that is complete they are dampened and the red dye is applied around all of the holes and slits, it's then splattered at random on both the front and the back. A "bloody" hand print of mine is applied to a "blank" area of each shirt to look as though you were literally grabbed at by the undead. I then leave them out flat to dry for at least 24 hours so the red dries completely. After that they are laid out for the Rit Dye Fixative to be applied to the all of the "blood" stained and splattered areas and wrapped in a plastic freezer bag and microwaved for 2 minutes. Once they are cooled I rinse them flat so the "blood" doesn't "run" or "leak" as much as possible. After they rinse clear I then rewash them by hand in the same natural laundry soap as before, rinse the soap out, and use baby safe fabric softener and let them soak for a half hour. After they are rinsed clean of any left over fabric softener I hang them to dry before shipping them out.
