how to tie dye a t shirt
Tie-dye is a process of resist dyeing textiles or clothing which is made from knit or woven fabric, usually cotton; typically using bright colors. “Tie-dye” can also describe the resulting pattern or an item which features this pattern.
Tie-dyeing is accomplished by folding the material into a pattern, and binding it with string or rubber bands. Dye is then applied to only parts of the material. The ties prevent the entire material from being dyed. Designs are formed by applying different colors of dyes to different sections of the wet fabric. A wet t-shirt is much easier to dye than a dry t-shirt. Once complete, the material is rinsed, and the dye is set.
Although many different kinds of dyes may be used, most tie-dyers now dye with Procion MX fiber reactive dyes.
