Tried something new yet again.✨ I had been wanting to try out tie and dye art since a really long time. It is an art form that basically includes folding/twisting/pleating/crumpling of a white fabric, tying it and then dyeing it by either dipping it into a dye solution or pouring different coloured dyes on it.🎨 I dyed these pieces of white cloth and some of my t-shirts using the natural colour of turmeric, which is easily found in every home. The process is very easy and the outcome is really amazing!😍 It made me super happy to see the designs!
Do give it a try and share your experiences!❤ FAQs:
1. How much water, salt and turmeric to be used?
Sufficient water to dip the cloth completely. About 2 tbsp salt in 0.5l water and about 2 tbsp turmeric in 1l water.
2. Why to soak it in salt water?
It helps to fasten the colour on the fabric and prevents excessive bleeding of colour on washing. Although, every dye, whether synthetic or natural, will fade with subsequent washing.
3. How to wash to the dyed cloth?
Only with cold water, using mild detergent.
4. What are some other natural products which can be used for dyeing?
Red cabbage, spinach, onion skins, berries, coffee, tea, beetroot, pomegranate, hibiscus, marigold, etc.
5. Which fabrics will take the dye easily?
Any natural fabric like cotton, silk, linen, wool, etc.
