Cushion Batik DipDye
Step 1Preparation: In preparation for the dyeing process, pre-wash the pillowcase without fabric softener to wash out the finishing of the fabric. Iron it before dyeing so that there are no creases in the fabric. Prepare all the work materials and make about 2 l of water boil, dissolve about ½ of the batik dye pack in the vessel intended for dyeing filled with hot water using the stirrer.
Step 2Then add a tablespoon of common table salt and stir it well.
Step 3Now add about 2 l of warm water from the tap so that you reach an immersion depth of 10-15 cm when immersing in the cushion. The water amount depends on the size of your dyeing vessel and can therefore vary. The temperature should be at least 40-50°C. Dyeing can be done up to 90°C. The hotter the dye bath, the more intense the dyeing result.
Step 4Now dip the pillowcase slowly and evenly into the dye bath to a depth of about 10 cm. Keep it that way for a few minutes. The dyeing time has also an impact on the intensity of the colour shade.
Step 5Then take the pillowcase out of the dye bath and let it drain well. Then hang it straight down on open clothes drying rack.
Important: Do not forget to put something underneath the clothes drying rack, as the paint will drip down.
