I recently read about swirl dying. Similar to tiedye, but using shaving cream as the dye medium. This way, the dye can be patterned more uniform. Here is our first try, everything waiting overnight to soak in the dye. We used 7 colors. If you try this, I suggest several different patterns with just 3-4 colors, and at least 4 bonus sized cans of shaving cream. Feel free to email me for links to the instructions.
