Tie-Dye, like Batik, is a resist technique. But instead of using wax to prevent dyefrom entering certain areas, the cloth is "bound" - tied or knotted or partially covered.Different ties, knots or covers produce different patterns of blockage, which the dyetransforms into permanent designs on the cloth. The fabric can be knotted or foldedor gathered into bunches before tying. You can tie around objects - a brick, say, or arubber ball. Use a pipette to place concentrated dye down into creases for strongaccents, or a syringe to work from the inside out. Use clamps or clothespins or removable lines of stitching for special effects. Roll or fan-fold the entire piece, fromthe top, from the side, in a spiral.
Dissolve ¼ cup urea in 1 pint of water. Use this solution to mix dye liquor: ½ to 2teaspoons dye per ¼ cup of urea-water (Up to 8 colors—use separate jars). For more intense colors try increasing soda and urea first; then try more dye.
Pre-wash cloth, in warm soapy water, to remove sizing. Dissolve 1 cup of Soda in2½ gallons of Water. Pre-soak your cloth for 15 minutes in this soda-water solution.Be careful: soda-water is alkaline enough to burn your hands.
Remove cloth from soda-water and apply ties while cloth is still wet. Non-conductiveties work best (undyable, impervious stuff: rubber bands, waxed-cord, plastic wrap).
Apply dye directly onto cloth. Use a pipet, syringe, brush, squeeze bottle, spray-bottle, spoon. Wear rubber gloves.
Let work stand covered, so that it doesn't dry out, for at least six hours (really) —over-night is better. This is the time the dye bonds to the fiber.
Undo ties, rinse well, then wash cloth in very hot soapy water (boiling is good or steaming or baking).Rinse until water runs clear.
Fold and/or tie the fabricinto the desiredpatterns.The designs willbe more defined if you wetthe shirt and squeeze or spin out excess water before folding.
Wear your dust mask anddissolve 1 cup (8 oz.) of per gallon of warm water. Soak thetied garments about 5-15 minutes(until saturated). Reuse solutionuntil gone. Squeeze out excessso garment is just damp, notdripping.
Using your dust mask andgloves, combine water with allchemicals except dye. Add liquidto dye gradually, pasting up toavoid lumps. Apply dye withsqueeze bottles, paint brushes,sponges, etc., as many colors asyou want. Easiest to use a funnelto pour dissolved dye intosqueeze bottles.
