For detailed information on
how I make tie
dyes, buy my videos.
I have been making tie dyes since 1990, and I have
learned how to make them by investing thousands of dollars
in materials, and thousands of hours, alone, making tie
dyes. Before I could make tie dyes, when I would see them,
they were like magic tricks to me. I could see
everything, but I couldn't understand how it came to be.
My tie dye videos answer your questions about tie dye,
from my point of view. And that is, "I don't understand how
these have come to be". For example, I tried to make the tie
dye star pattern for years, before I happened upon how it
works. I love the tie dye star pattern. I had been making
tie dyes for about 10 or 12 years, before I learned the
technique. This design was one magic trick I loved to see. I
can spot a tie dye star from a mile away. So for the first
10 or 12 years I made tie dyes, if you could make the star
pattern, you were a master & better than me.
So if you're learning how to tie dye apparel, and you don't know
how to make the tie dye star, you really need to spend the
$20, and save yourself years of time and hundreds of
dollars, trying to unlock the combination to the star pattern tie dye.
To me, there is a ladder that you
climb when you learn how to make tie dyes. It's the ladder
of tie dye patterns. So way up the ladder, past patterns and
stars, are the objects. These are the designs that have the
really wavy and sharp turning lines. Once your skill level
is high enough, you will understand how to fold intricate
tie dye patterns using the sharp turns and bending lines.
This is where designs like the
tie dye butterfly come in.
This is one of those objects that has the sharp turning
lines and other intricate folds. I didn't understand how to
make these types of patterns, until I had one major turning
point in my understanding. I teach you what came from that
understanding in my 3rd video, the tie dye crash course on
butterflies. You should spend $20 on my video, and skip all
the time, money, and effort needed to figure it out on your
I teach you things you probably have never seen in the
tie dye crash course on butterflies. So go ahead, and get
yourself up to speed on these techniques.
4 years have gone by since I release the tie dye crash
course series, which includes three (3) tie dye
instructional videos. Now I'm ready to teach you all the
next levels in tie dye design. I call it the
Advanced Tie Dye, because that's what it is. In this new
video I take you further into tie dye than I have ever
taught. My goal is to teach you how to easily create the
In this new video, I don't just show you how I create the
designs, I tell you as I go along, tips and things I have
learned about each design that I consider and think about as
I make them. My goal is to convey to you the techniques I
use, so you can create what ever design you want.
Yes I teach you how to create the advanced tie dye
hippie clothes, but more importantly I teach you the techniques I
use to create them. It's the techniques that will open the
doors for you to create the patterns and designs you want to
make. Understanding how to make the cotton apparel do what you want,
and how to color it to look right, is more important than
just making the design. Tie Dye is a craft that requires
different techniques to express the idea. The more you know,
the more you show.
Another way to think about the price to learn the
advanced tie dye techniques is once you have the knowledge
the art you create will change. You will be able to make tie
dyes that you never could before, and seeing those new tie
dyes you made will make you feel great inside!
