A spray bottle helps you use the ombre tie-dye technique on fabric. The ombre tie-dye technique from I Love to Create shows a gradual change in color shade by adding water to the dye. Watch the video of this tie-dye technique below!
 

Ombre 1

Add water to bottle

Prewash fabric to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets. Do not dry dress.

Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth. Lay damp dress on prepared surface.

Wearing rubber gloves, add water to dye bottle. Replace cap tightly.  Shake until dye is dissolved.
 Ombre 2 Pour into spray bottle

Pour dye from bottle into spray bottle.

Another way to create an ombre effect is by using gravity. Some years ago I got bleach on the bottom of a new t-shirt. I bleached the rest of the bottom to remove all the color. I rinsed it well to remove bleach residue, then I mixed pink fabric paint with water in a spray bottle and sprayed over the bleached area. I hung the t-shirt upside down so the paint flowed into the still (blue) colored area. I did the same to the top with yellow paint and water. After everything dried I added a black stencil design, then ironed the shirt to set the paint.

Hopefully I can post of picture of this shirt.

Or dip the bottom 10 minutes, then move more 7 minutes, more 4 minutes, 2 minutes and then last for 30 seconds. You get the same effect.

I meant put bottom in the move up a few inches, and then a few more inches with those minutes seconds until you get to the top.
