Nothing Ventured...







As long as all of the dye I hand painted on two shirts, a dress, and a scarf today doesn't wash out or transfer, you may just be looking at the completed ERMIE Summer 2010 capsule collection. I'm going to try to take photos and get the stuff up this weekend.

I hope the dye doesn't wash out- got a damn sunburn making these (but I was the dope who forgot to put sunscreen on my back & arms)!

looks like you had a blast! funny jenny mentioned a tie-dye party cause some friends & myself are having one this weekend!

as to the bleeding issue - what kind of dye did you use? shabd had us use fiber reactive dyes. here's waht we got for the said tie-dye party this weekend:

oh, I hope it works -they look great.
I've been enjoying painting with dye -you have so much more control.
it's harder to get as intense colors though -they tend to fade more.
