That looks great! The costume is polyester and I did a search on dyeing the stuff. Looks like it can be done but I don't want it dyed, just dirtied up a bit. Will try this. Thank you!

How did it turn out JW? I stained a dress shirt by dunking it in a fairly viscous mud/water combo (as stated above), stirred it, let it sit for a few minutes then rinsed it off. Repeat until done. Tea or coffee would work but you can't really wash out/erase the staining so you're stuck with whatever stains happen.

The shirt I did was for a zombie party so I dirtied then bloodied up the cuffs more than anywhere else. I would imagine if I was a zombie, I would be digging around a lot.

I tried a few of the suggestions but at the end of the day, it still looked pretty shiny and new. Guessing the fabric just didn't want to dull down. We used it as is and it was fine for our purposes. I've since sold all the clown stuff to another haunter right after Halloween last year.

I made a Jason pt7 a few years back, I used a series of washes. Different brown acrylic paints watered way down and built up. It's the most natural and looks great. It is time consuming, but again looks amazing!!! Your darker browns raw sienna, burnt umber etc. Good luck, and be patient
