Tie Dye your T-shirt April 20th at The Art Store!
Come join Sean for a fun group tie dye event on 4/20 from 2:00 -4:00!
Just in time to wear your shirt for National Tie Dye Day on April 30th! 🙂
B.Y.O.T. (Bring your own 100% cotton T-shirt)
We’ll provide the inspiration, guidance, and dyes! Your awesome shirt will be ready to wear a few days after dying it.
For this demo we will be using Jacquard’s procion fiber reactive dyes to dye your t-shirt.
$25, sign up now for $15!
Limit of 10
Please be sure you bring a t-shirt that is 100% cotton!!! If it isn’t, the dye won’t look right… sad face.
We will have to keep the shirts for a couple of days after dying them, because the dyes have to set and then we will rinse and wash the shirts for you, before you pick them up!
Procion MX dyes are “cold water dyes” that are fixed chemically instead of with heat. This unique property sets Procion MX apart from all other dyes and establishes them as the undisputed king of backyard dyeing, batik and tie dye. Because Procion MX dyes can be used away from the stovetop, they are also the ideal colors for shibori, ice dyeing, tub and low water immersion dyeing, printing, direct painting and other “alternative” dye applications. As a fiber-reactive dye, Procion MX forms a strong covalent bond with cellulosic fibers, making it the most permanent and washfast of all dyestuffs. Mix the concentrated dye powder with tap water to create the most vibrant colors possible for cotton.
Jacquard Procion dyes are great for tie dye, immersion dyeing, batik, screen printing, direct application, gradation/ombré dyeing, sprinkle dyeing, ice dyeing and more!
We did some tie dye testing over the weekend, check out some of the fun!
