Dip Dyed Tees

We've been doing a lot more multi-toned resin tints over the past year or so.  They turn out a little sloppy and imperfect but its a cool effect.  Anyhow, we've been pondering how to produce a similar effect on a tee shirt (without using resin of course ;)) and I finally came across the idea of dip dying.  Some folk out there try to produce a continuous color flow (hombre) but we were shooting for a banded appearance just like a resin tint.

After we got the whole batch dipped and rinsed, it was off to the screen printers with them.  Had a little trouble finding someone who was willing to help us out with our unique request but the kind folk over at Triumph, right next door to us, sorted us out.

Here's how the finished product turned out.   We only made 20 of them so head on over to the Merch section and get em quick!
