How about taking away privileges and staying consistent to let her know you are serious.

Tie die falls into the same catagory as permanent markers around here.  They are still in trouble for not listening, but its your own damn fault for having permanent ink where your 5 year old can reach it! 

In that situation I would throw the entire kit away and take away her art stuff for a couple days.

Getting them to listen takes time and patience each time! Lol. But I agree nothing permanent in reach unless they ask for it help (including scissors)!

Every time she doesn't listen, there has to be a consequence, and you have to be consistent w/ it each time. 

My dd will be 6 in Jan, so I know what you're going through!
