This is one of the techniques that allows us to paint our t-shirts with a wide variety of colors and designs, having as a limit our creativity, it is known as Tie-dye .

This technique is placed on cotton fabric or T-shirts with a percentage of cotton, using clothing dye , the dyes are mixed with hot water and some fixative of the dye to the fabric such as salt .

  • Then turn the shirt according to the design you want, it can be in a spiral or lines, for this step we use elastic bands.

  • Place the shirt in a bag and wait 24 hours.
