You can not dye black material.. However, you can remove some of the dye of a black cotton garment using bleach or a product known as Discharge Paste. Then you can tie dye or… paint with dye on the white or near-white areas.. If you use bleach, you must first get a chemical sometimes known as 'bleach stop'. Washing alone is not enough to completely stop the bleach from acting to weaken your fabric. After bleaching parts of your black garment, you must soak the garment in the 'bleach stop' to prevent the bleach from continuing to act on your fabric. . Using bleach, or to a lesser extent using discharge paste, requires extra care because these chemicals are harsh. But used carefully they can help create stunning effects.
OK here are the steps, 1.find a white shirt 2.take hair ties and crunch it all up them 3.take paint (your color choices) 4.put paint in squeezer things... 5.squeeze …or splat pant all over the shirt (you can leave white if you want to) 6.take out hair ties 7.hang shirt until dry 8.ENJOY YOUR NEW SHIRT!!
A tie dye shirt is a shirt that is covered with random bursts ofcolor. It get's its name because it began by tying a shirt intomultiple sections and then randomly dipping it i…nto colored dye.
Get a plain white shirt and use rubber bands and tie it in places dip it in dye take it out and squeeze it take rubber bands off and hang it to dry oh and where gloves of else… the dye will stain your hand for like a week
You need to use more tie when using Black about two to four times as much.
Tie-dye uses fiber-reactive dyes, where the color sort of fuses with the actual fiber of the material (why almost all tie-dye you see is on cotton, natural fibers play nice wi…th dye!) This means that if your tie-dyed shirt is already died, and has been heat set -- this is the most important step in dyeing, usually tie-dyed stuff is thrown for a cycle round the drying machine, otherwise it can be ironed -- then you wash normally. Just wash the shirt according to general laundry rules, in cold water, and you'll be fine.. If you didn't dye the shirt yourself and are not sure what sort of dye was used, experiment with soaking the shirt or running hot water over it and seeing if the color comes away. If it does, try ironing the shirt with a press cloth (a piece of scrap fabric, usually muslin or white cotton) between the iron and the garment, and the garment and ironing board (otherwise you'll have a lovely tie-dyed ironing board cover!) then putting it in the dryer for a cycle all alone. Hopefully that will heat set the dye if that step was ignored by the dyer.. The whole point of dying any article of clothing, espeically with fiber reactive dye, is to fundamentally change the material, so as long as you are careful washing a tie-dyed shirt should not hurt it.
After you tie-dye a shirt you need to wash out the loose dye that didn't fix to the shirt. Hopefully you used "reactive type" dyes which are permanent on cotton if used correc…tly. Here is how to wash out the loose dye: 1. Leave the shirt tied up! 2. Let it sit for a while if you have time to. If you let dyed shirts sit for a few hours it is much easier and cleaner to wash out the loose dye. 3. Wear gloves when you touch the dyed shirt because it's messy! 4. When you are ready to wash the loose dye out, take the tied up shirt to your sink. Leave it tied up and put it in the sink and turn on the cold running water. Let the water flow onto the shirt. A lot of loose dye will start to flow out from the shirt in the cold running water, this is normal. The cold flowing water will wash away the dye and keep the colors from running together and keep the white areas white. 5. Leave the shirt tied up and rinse and rinse until you kind of get sick of rinsing! 6. Finish washing out the loose dye by filling your washing machine with warm water. Add laundry soap (or special synthrapol detergent you can buy from the dye seller) and get the water sudsy. Untie the shirt and throw it in the soapy water. If you've rinsed out several shirts you can put them all in the washer together now. Wash the shirts in the washing machine as many times as you need to until when you look in a rinse cycle the water is clear and no more dye is coming out of the fabric. When you get to this point, you're done.
blue would look good with a black shirt. white could look good maybe
First, be sure it is a solid color, with no contrasting stains or grease spots. These show up as stains in the black. If the fabric has a contrasting print or has dye stains…, you can try RIT "color remover", available at many large supermarkets, to remove the excess color and make your garment a more unified undertone (does not need to be white) before dyeing. Follow instructions on envelope. Color remover requires boiling water, so be sure you have a fabric which will not shrink. Dyes like Rit and Tintex are readily available. I would use a lot more than they recommend, but make sure you dissolve the powder well or use the preliquified kind in a bottle. Or you can buy aniline dyes which are stronger. Wet your item and make sure you submerge it in your dye completely, and stir to distribute the dye through the fabric. Stir a lot! And make sure to keep stirring so that the dye doesn't take unevenly. Keep the temperature at a good simmer. Use some salt in the water to help the dye distribute and absorb evenly - maybe a half cup of salt in a large stockpot of dye water. Don't bother trying to dye anything black in the washing machine. It won't be hot enough, and the item will not come out black.
Its easy! All you have to wear is really depending on you!! if you are lazy... sweats are cozy and if your active... black or white basketball pants are great! What i wear wit…h tie dye is definitely tight blue jean shorts!
The easiest way is to buy a how to tie-dye book, or a tie-dye kit.

you can really tie dye any shirts but cotton is the best for it, because of its result. and you can get shirts from any craft store
Yes. There are many stores like Old Navy that have them, or you can buy some online.
To tie a spiral pattern tie dye first lay a washed shirt flat on the table grab it in the middle with two fingers and twist in a circle and keep the shirt from getting too bun…ched up. When done tie with three rubber bands. Now it is tied up and ready for the next step of tie dye.
