 The key to beginning is learning about all of the paraphernalia that you simply shall need.
These shall mean getting a fabric dye, squeeze bottles, white tops/blouse, rubber bands and gloves, bucket and plastic bags.

After knowing what your materials are, you have to know how you can use these materials.

Firstly, hold the white top and soak it within the container of half cup brine solution.
Squeeze fabric to obtain rid of excess water and hang shirt to dry.
This creased cloth is wear the patterns shall be created.

A number of tie dye patterns are available in market today.
To get that variety, learn to create more patterns.

The first is the Spiral tie dye pattern.

Invert the crumpled clothing.
Produce a roll by starting from a focal stage that you select within the fabric.
Next, turn the fabric to accomplish this roll.

With your thumb and forefinger, consider the material and pull the free ends together with your other hand toward the same path as the roll.
Tie the roll together with 3 rubber bands.
Lastly, tie the rubber bands in a pinwheel like routine.

Six diagonal sections will be made and after sometime you may color each section with any color of your preference.

Secondly, may be the series of circles tie dye patterns.
Consider the crumpled fabric wrong side up.
From the chosen middle stage, consider that portion from the fabric and complement with rubber bands then proceed with shading.

An additional style of design is the Marble tie dye pattern.
Crease your white top into a bunch
Afterwards, tie the rubber bands around the shirt in the pinwheel like pattern and plunge the crumpled t-shirt in your dye bath.

Now that you simply are aware of the tie dye patterns, you should understand how you can dye the fabrics.
