powdered dye

anonymous asked:

Hey friend I know you've dyed fabrics before and wondered if you have any tips I'm about to attempt dying a denim jacket.

i’ve dyed a couple of denim jackets! really my only advice is to bleach the living heck out of it and get as much color out of the denim as possible so that your dye color turns out as true to the packet/bottle as possible

i’d recommend powder dyes over liquid dyes. rit dye isn’t that gr8 in my opinion, i use dylon powder dyes and the result has been great every time

i always dye my fabric pieces/jackets/etc outside in a plain ol white five gallon bucket with hot water (so i don’t run the risk of staining my tub/washing machine)

if it’s a white denim jacket, tho, you don’t really need to worry about bleaching or anything unless it’s a polyester blend (if it’s poly blend then the color will turn out lighter no matter what)

if you’re dying a denim jacket darker than the original color, don’t worry about bleaching it (unless you want the blue undertone out of it first)

also i’m sure people in the replies of this ask can provide their own advice/experiences as well! :D

My hair evolution since September. My hair was soooo damaged with bleach! I can’t stop cutting my hair because of dried ends! The three last pictures are recent, I’ve finally redyed my hair with henna because it’s so much healthier. It’s feels so much soft just with this and now I’m using sidr powder for wash my hair, it’s less drying than a classic shampoo and more economic!
And look at my undercut, it’s grow so much during less than 5 months (the last trim was in the beginning of September, I’ve trim this in 0,6mm with my hair clippers)! Let it grow!


Pirate costume WIP update:

  • Made the top from scratch, out of a two way stretch linen in a natural unbleached colour. Used one of my favourite t-shirts as the base pattern and then eyeballed the sleeves as big as I could make them with the fabric I had left.
  • The skirt is hand dyed by yours truly. Using two Dylon powder dyes (Ocean Blue and Navy Blue), I dyed an old hand-made 90s raw silk wedding gown (white), then chopped it up and made it to fit me like a skirt. Just have to put in grommets and lacing at the back to keep it at my waist!

Tomorrow is figuring out the grommets and finalizing accessories. Pics will follow later this week. <333
