HOW TO CREATE A HORIZONTAL TIE DYE PATTERN
WET AND FOLD
Materials needed to create a tie-dye pattern vary depending on how intricate you’d like your design to be. For this basic fold pattern start with a damp t-shirt lay it flat and start folding the shirt like you are making a paper fan.
WRAP WITH RUBBER BANDS
Secure the shirt with rubber bands to prevent it from unravelling. Place a band approx every two cm
APPLY THE DYE
Choose your colour combination in this example we are using yellow and magenta
Start applying the colours in stripes by alternating them. Flip your T-shirt after each strip is done, and make sure you fill it with colour on both sides of the shirt. Repeat this step until you have filled up the entire shirt with colour
Once the T-shirt is dyed, remove all rubber bands before it dries.
Leave to dry and don't forget to heat set.
TIE-DYE | FABRIC SPRAY PAINT
It's simple to apply tie-dye in the Derivan Refillable Art Spray Bottles to give a T-shirt or accessory a splash of colour. See how simple it is,
CUT A STENCIL
Create a stencil out of contact or vinyl and place it on the dry T-shirt. -In this t-shirt design, the negative shapes are used as well. See the duck shape bottom left
Use the Derivan Refillable Art Spray Bottles with a small amount of the dye and start spraying your design.
LAYER THE COLOURS
Try mixing colours by spraying them over one another.
USING RUBBER BANDS TO CREATE CIRCLE TIE-DYE DESIGNS
Creating this circle tie-dye shirt is extremely simple. You need a damp shirt, a few rubber bands, and the Derivan Tie-dye. We created a two rings design for this example, but you may use as many as you desire.
START WITH A
Your t-shirt should be damp before you start tie-dying because this encourages the intense, pigmented dyes to diffuse through the fabric.
POSITION YOUR RUBBER BANDS
Increase or decrease the size of the circle by moving the rubberbanded rings up or down. The more rubber bands you add, the more circles you will get in your design.
START APPLYING THE TIE-DYES
Time to get creative, the fine nozzles in this kit allow precision in applying the dyes.
