I love to experiment with Tie-Dye ... Here is an Experiment I did the other day, I randomly scrunched and tied the tee up, then added my dyes and then I went to add the Soda Ash (activates the dyes so they can bond with the cotton fibers) and I got part of the tee coated really good and a little splash on the rest of it... I filled the bottle back up, but got distracted before I added more Soda Ash to the rest of the tee ... this caused me to have a bright spot with the rest of the tee in muted tones due to the lack of enough soda ash ... I think it looks kinda cool as I love Contrast ... so, another One of a Kind tee is ready for you to wear. ✌🏻💚😎
But, just so you know, they dyes that are present are fully set, just muted.
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!
