I have been having fun with a new technique... Discharging or Reversing. I start with a Black tee, tie it up and remove color in a pattern and then sometimes I add color back in. So in this case, Scrunched a black tee, removed color from part of it, rinsed it several times, soaked in soda ash and then dyed with Fire Colors.
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!
