Gradation Tie Dye Technique


Gradation Tie Dye Technique

Create a hip tie-dye shirt, dress or even curtains with a subtle gradation in color. The gradation tie-dye technique from I Love to Create is simple to learn and looks great.

Before beginning any tie-dye project, read the instructions for the Tulip One-Step Fashion Dye or Tulip Permanent Fabric Dye.  Refer back to them for standard steps.


Gradatin 1 Apply dye

Fill dye bottle with water.

Apply 1/2 of dye in bottle to 1/3 of damp fabric.

Gradation 2

Dilute dye and apply

Refill dye bottle with water diluting color.

Apply 1/2 of dye bottle to next 1/3 of fabric.

Refill bottle again for the lightest color concentration and apply to the remaining undyed potion of fabric.

Follow general tie-dye instructions for the wrap, let set and rinse steps.
