a peak at my dye process

a simplified picture of the dye process i use to directly apply dye to fabric

step 1: chose my colors ( i usually make my fabrics with a base of 6-8 colors)

step 2: mix the dyes

step 3: apply the dye to fabric (which has been presoaked with dye activator).

step 4: batch & rinse, once painted the dyed fabric is kept wet to batch under plastic overnight and then rinsed in several steps 24 hours later. once rinsed i machine wash the fabric in hot with professional textile detergent to lock in the color.

check out my etsy shop to see some of the stuff i’ve been making lately with these one of a kind, hand dyed fabrics…
