    Industrial dyeing
    In the textiles industry, the dyeing of fabrics is done on a large industrial scale. The dyeing process has to be accurate to ensure that the same colours can be produced again and again. The types of dyeing process used is dependant on the type of fabric and the type of fibres it contains. The production methods used in the textiles and fashion industry to dye products are:

    Shibori
    This is a folding process and originates in Japan, where the dye (most often indigo is used for this technique) is added to the folded fabric, which is then steamed to set the dye. Unfolding the fabric will reveal a sculptured effect. T

    Tie dye
    Tie dying is a process in which areas of the fabric are tied off with twine, string, or elastic bands firmly in a range of designs as shown below. For some more details about how to create these examples use the link to the following site: http://craftbits.com/project/tie-dye-effects/ The fabric is then dyed and rinsed with the tied areas resisting the dye and remaining the original colour. Each design is unique even if tied off in the same way they will never be identical. The fabric can be wound, twisted, folded, and pleated, objects such as buttons, bottle lids etc. can be bound into the fabric with the twine, equally clips and pegs can be used to fix and hold the fabric in its folded state.

    Tritik
    This techniques is achieved by stitching using a running stitch with a strong thread the outline pattern that you desire. Then pull the thread so that it thread is gathered tightly to give the best effect, tie off by stitching a couple of stitches then knot. Soak the fabric in the dye, then leave to dry out completely before removing the thread and ironing flat. The video below demonstrates this - however it does describe it as stitched Shibori.

    The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practised for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there. The word batik originates from the Javanese "tik" and means to dot.
    To make a batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original colour. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colourful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for wearing or showing. (www.batikguild.org.uk)

    This method of dyeing is often used in schools and by crafters, it is an easy and clean method of applying colour to fabric and finished textile products. The dyes can be applied to any light coloured fabric, however a better quality of colour is achieved if the fabric is at least 50% synthetic.
    In preparation for the method of colouration, the fabric has to be pre washed and dried to remove the size (finish) and then ironed.
    ...
    The crayons are applied to paper then transferred to the fabric by ironing this method is known as disperse dye, however the instructions on the fabric crayon pack mentions directly crayoning onto the surface of the fabric then ironing with a piece of paper over the fabric to absorb the wax residue.
    It is best to test your fabrics and the dyes before you begin your project. For example below: satin and calico, fabric crayon with paper transfer, fabric crayon direct, fabric pens, fabric paints.

    A printing paste is applied directly to the fabric, in which colourants containing dyes, thickeners, and the mordants or substances necessary for fixing the colour on the cloth are printed in the desired pattern.

    To apply dye or colour to fabric or textile products effectively you must first consider the following:

    The process of dyeing is normally carried out in three stage:
    Cleaning of the fibres/fabrics to remove oils or any other foreign objects that might stop the dye from being applied to the product: this is done to ensure that the dyes work well on the fibres/fabrics and to ensure that no faults will occur.
    The dyingdyeing process where
    The finishing process in which the excess dye is removed from the product and is scoured with soaps and detergents. This is an important part of the dyeing process, as there are many toxic chemicals used in the commercial and home dyes which could cause skin irritations, Also if the excess is not thoroughly washed out streaking or colour loss may occur quickly in the final products.

    Tie dying is a process in which areas of the fabric are tied off with twine, string, or elastic bands firmly in a range of designs as shown below. For some more details about how to create these examples use the link to the following site: http://craftbits.com/project/tie-dye-effects/ The fabric is then dyed and rinsed with the tied areas resisting the dye and remaining the original colour. Each design is unique even if tied off in the same way they will never be identical. The fabric can be wound, twisted, folded, and pleated, objects such as buttons, bottle lids etc. can be bound into the fabric with the twine, equally clips and pegs can be used to fix and hold the fabric in its folded state.

    Marbling
    This process requires a large container filled with a base liquid which will not react with the fabric paint or dye, but instead will allow the colourant to sit on the surface of the liquid and with tools it can be manipulated into swirls etc. The flat fabric is then laid on top of the liquid and the dye is transferred capturing the marbling pattern, peel off the fabric and allow to dry flat, fix the colourant according to manufacturers instructions. This process can be repeated two or three times before it becomes to faint and the base liquid and colourant need to be replaced.
