I love to experiment with HWI... you tie the tee up in whatever design you like, then lay powdered dye on it, then use a sprayer with HOT water and then you spray the dye on the tee which then lets the dye run down into the tee where it is placed
Here is a Rainbow WigWag ZigZag tee, or close to it... this one I placed the dye a little differently because I forgot to mark my lines on the bottom side, so when it came time to flip and add more dye, I had to just go for it as close as I could to matching it up.... and wow the results were awesome!!
One of a Kind!! ✌🏻
Here is a video for the design, but not this tee in particular : WigWag ZigZag
I use Procion dyes which are professional strength commercial dyes, the colors stay bright for years. I work with Gildan Ultra tees, they are 6.1 oz, 100% pre-shrunk cotton.
Great dyes, quality tees, and attention to detail, combined with my ability to embrace the random nature of liquid color, equals an awesome new shirt for you to wear and show off. Each tee is handmade, so every tee shirt is unique.... I may be able to do one similar, but never exact.
Hello, my name is Carl, aka MrTieDye. I am a Dye Artist and I love the medium of tie-dye. I push the boundaries of tie-dye to places few people have seen. I am constantly asked "how did you do THAT with tie-dye?"
I started twisting tees and splashing dye in August 2000 and quickly realized the unlimited potential of the tie-dye medium. I have experimented with many techniques of tie-dye as I explored its history. Now, along with my peers, I am boldly contributing to the future of this dynamic new face now emerging in the World of Art ~ Tie-Dye!
