How to Dye Pants

How to Dye Pants
Buy the stone washed kind that are lighter in color because they dye better. For my pants I used two green liquid dyes of different colors mixed, and some straight color dyes. A word of caution, I tried to dye blue jeans with brown and either I did not use enough dye or something because they turned out purple. Wouldn’t have been bad if I was a girl. Lighter colors did not seem to work well either on dark colored blue jeans. The green worked very well on light colored blue jeans and so did the black.

I find Levis Jeans to be a more comfortable fit for me than any other, and I have always come back to prefer them. I like the relaxed fit type. In my size there are few color choices.
Again lighter color jeans with darker colored dyes work the best. Ritt does sell some products to remove the color or dye from a garment, but I have not tried them. Maybe I should have, so I have a pair of purple like jeans who cares. I live with my mistakes so as to be reminded of them and not make them again.

I have added a link to a small store where you will find products relavent to this article.

About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Blogs. My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did. WWW.ThomasMurphy.lifepics.com
