Live Dye – Gallery 4

Our Amazing Discharge Vat Dye 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, amazing discharge vat dye tie-dye designs, where we use both household bleach discharge and vat dyes to give the designs greater depth and more dramatic impact. Since vat dye solution contains thiourea dioxide to reduce the dye, the vat dye will remove any base color and impose its own color, as you can see on the right sleeve of Ghost World Afire (left). We plan a whole series of pieces with minimal bleach or thiox discharge and emphasis on the vat dye over the base color – keep your eye on these galleries for these new pieces! Please visit our New Tees and New Dresses pages to see our new work, and many of our double-discharge vat dye 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.
