Fabric Gradient Dye Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay Fabric Gradient Dye Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay
At last, the long awaited Gradient Dyeing Tutorial! I'm sorry it took so long to make, but here you go!

I've had a lot of practice with this method, and this is the formula that works best for me, so I hope it can help you dye your fabric with ease. Fabric dyeing is actually one of my favorite parts about costuming, so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any - I'll be glad to answer them!

Would the same process work for bleaching?

I would assume so, but it depends on what type of fabric you are bleaching (natural fiber vs synthetic).

say that you were to take orange fabric and try to use this method with yellow dye.. would this work? or would i have to purchase white fabric and the two different colored dyes.?

Hm, I'm not sure, but I wouldn't think that would work.  You would have to bleach the orange first or remove the color from it, then try the yellow.  Dyeing generally doesn't work well on darker fabrics to lighter dyes.  You could always start with yellow fabric and go to orange.

Would this tutorial also work for satin?

If the satin is a natural fabric, or if you have polyester dye for polyester fabrics, sure!

Could i take a spray bottle of the dye and spray it on the fabric to get a gradient effect too?
