Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Today’s Friday Tip combines two of my favorite things — costuming and tea!

You can use tea to dye white elastic so it is closer to your skin tone.

Obviously you want to use black tea here. Your favorite herbal blend* is not going to have the same effect. Use a couple of cheap tea bags (the sort I’d never use to make anything I was going to drink) to brew up a strong cup and drop in your elastic. Make sure to stir the elastic around so it dyes evenly. Keep an eye on the color of the elastic as it’s soaking and remember that when wet it’s about 2 shades darker than when it dries.

* not actually a tea, but that’s a message for another time.
