Dye Penetration
  • Hi, just dyed this shirt, and it came out pretty good, except that there are large areas of white. This ain't a big deal, but I'm wondering, what am I doing wrong? Do I need to add on more dye, or do I need to tie differently or what? A link to my results is below:

    Help appreciated:-),

  • Hi Ts,

    Took a look at your shirt - I would say that you just need to add more dye to the shirt, the classic spiral tie looks good.
    As you are applying dye work the applicator tip down into the folds or separate the folds with your fingers to look for white areas and add dye there. You are definitely on the right track - just a little more practice and you'll have the full coverage you are looking for.

    hope this helps
