Choose color you will want to use from kit; add water to each bottle half way, shake, then fill with water to fill line, shake.
Lay Shirt flat on work surface. Decide the area on the fabric where you want the swirl to be. Pinch fabric at this point. Twist fabric around into a flat spiral.
Squirt dye onto shirt, turn over and repeat.
