You will need the following things to re-create this texture.
Dye (Remember that dyes and fabrics both have very unique qualities and not all dyes will work on different fabrics. RIT dye works on most cottons, and is what I chose to use.)
Fabric (For this demonstration I am using a piece of muslin. You can use fabric and then later make it into something to wear, or, because I promise it looks THAT cool, just keep the dyed fabric as a wall hanging or as a canvas to make a painting on later.)
A roll or two of Rubber/Grip Drawer Liner Mat
A stick to stir the dye bath.
(A tray to carry fabric from bath to sink/tub to rinse. Not necessary but definitely controls dripping.)
You should also cover up your pretty clothes with an apron or coat and wear rubber gloves.
Prepare your dye as instructed on your package.
