Tie Dye is an art that can provide many different results depending on the method's used. Colour Society use the below methods most actively - if you are ordering a custom piece from us please be sure to let us know what style you prefer!
These aren't the only styles we can offer so if you do have something in mind please let us know. We do recommend referring to our own social media channels for your inspiration where possible, as this will allow us to best understand how to re-create the piece you are wanting and best meet your expectations. You're most welcome to send us photos of other work for 'inspiration' too however keep in mind that the results of tie dye often have an element of 'surprise' - which is what makes it so special.
Cluster & Cluster Ombre
The Cluster effect is our fave! This effect can be used with just 1 colour, or our favourite is 1 colour used as an ombre effect with light and darker shades. This technique can also work with 2-4 dye colours, or in rainbow/pastel shades. If you are using rainbows or multiple colours keep in mind that some colours do not mix well - eg Yellow and Purple will create a brown. For cluster rainbows we recommend Yellow, Blue and Pink - this will create residual greens and purple's also.
Spirals - Rainbow/Custom Colours
The classic! Our Spirals and Rainbow Spirals are available in a range of colours, but we prefer a Turquoise/Aqua, Yellow, Pink and Purple as these colours blend in a really bright effect that is a little less intimidating than some of the red based rainbows. We do offer red based rainbows if you prefer! Rainbows should be used with at least 3-4 colours, and can also be done in pastel tones.
The Cloudy Effect is available in combinations with 1-4 colours on a piece. We think it looks it's best, and is most effective with just 1-2 colours on top of the white garment. The more colours you want to include, the less white you will see. This style comes across like little spots or squiggles, and lots of them in comparison to clusters which cover quite large spaces of the garment. If you are using rainbows or multiple colours keep in mind that some colours do not mix well - eg Yellow and Purple will create a brown. For cluster rainbows we recommend Yellow, Blue and Pink - this will create residual greens and purple's also.
