Live Dye – Gallery 3

Our Powerful Double Discharge Tie-Dyes

Welcome to our Gallery pages, where you'll see our past and present work on display, and where you can pick a design for your own unique Live Dye piece. This third gallery consists of our recent, powerful double-discharge tie-dye designs, where we use both household bleach and thiourea dioxide (Thiox) to give the designs greater depth, complexity, and impact. Most of the tees are on Gildan 2000 Black tees, where the bleach yields a brown-tan-sand spectrum and the Thiox yields a bluegray-gray-white spectrum. The They Are Watching, Fireworks Finale, and Supernova pieces are on Hanes Nano tees, and you can see the reddish tint to the bleached areas and a greenish cast to the Thiox discharges. Check out our discharge pages to see more of what Thiox can do. Please visit our New Tees and New Dresses pages to see our new work, and many of our Double Discharge Tie-Dyes are still available through our BIG Sale!

Please realize that this is copyrighted work, and that we expect to make our living from producing these pieces. We hope you'll respect this and act accordingly.
