Happy Tuesday! Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to alter fabric using color with you. There are so many ways to alter fabric each with it’s own unique outcome. I really think it’s amazing how a color change can make a basic fabric look totally unique and fashion forward.
Often we think of tie dye when we think of dying fabric and I think that can turn many people off the idea, but you’d be amazed at the cool colors and patterns you can get with dye, tie dying or otherwise. Dye is also an inexpensive way to alter or upgrade a plain fabric, here are a few of my favorite dying and fabric painting techniques.
Ice Dying: Let the ice do the work for you.
Or, try it with snow here!
Fabric Markers: Release your inner artist and draw right on your fabric.
For more fabric marker ideas try here, and here.
Tie Dying: The granddaddy of dying fabric, but the outcome is up to you depending on how you tie your fabric and the colors you use.
For more tie dye: I love this one, these pants, and this scarf.
I hope these techniques inspire you to play with color and try a new technique. Leave a comment and let me know your favorite!
