Rainbow "Splatter" Dyeing?
  • Hi btw Im new! :) My names Jenn...and Im startin up a new biz..and learning new things by the day.

    Ok a wahm like me is trading some of her things for me to dye some of her fabric for her...she wants a "Rainbow Splatter" and one with BRIGHT/primarys too...
    doesnt know the technique and I havent gotten a pic yet...thought Id ask on here?? is she talking about multi colored tie-dyed circles pretty much?
    is that a SPLATTER?:confused:

    THanks in advance! I really hope someone might be able to help..
  • sounds like she wants a Jackson Pollock style dripped and slung from a some height. I think with this type of art, less is more.... and I would start with Yellow... then add the other colors being watchful for muddy or ugly colors. Perhaps it would be best to do a test on an old cotton pillow case or something.

    Here is a youtube vid.. that shows someone doing it on paper. Perhaps that will help.
