Thank you!

Before I bought this dress, I had SO MANY different ideas of what I wanted to do. I knew I would be buying a white dress (or ivory or champagne or whatever) so I researched tons of ways to dye/color different materials and painting/dying fabric techniques. Also saved lots of pictures of designer & couture dresses for inspiration (fell in love with lots of $10k+ dresses! ha!).

Once I had this dress, I did a lot of experimenting with a spare piece of tulle flower fabric to make sure I got it right, but I wasn't able to find the perfect color gradient in any one ink or pen, so I had to do a combination.

Here are the materials I used for the dye/coloring:

  • BIC Intensity Permanent Markers
  • Generic Fabric Markers
  • Faber-Castell India Ink Pitt Artist Pens (my local art supply store carries these so I was able to buy single pens in just the right color)

    I didn't discover the india ink pens until I was 2/3 done, and I wish I had thought of them earlier. The ink was MUCH more saturated, but didn't absorb into the tulle as easily as I thought it would.

    The BIC pens were my #1 favorite, aside from they run out of ink quickly. They absorbed into the tulle really well, and the colors were just spot-on perfect. You can order individual pens from their website ($1 each), so I ended up ordering about 20-30 pens of each color from the coral pink up (they didn't have a darker coral/salmon/red that I liked).

    When I started, I vastly underestimated the amount of time and ink it would take to complete. I ended up having to place orders with BIC 3 times! It took about a total of 4 weeks to finish. Here is a picture of the panel before it was removed for coloring, you can kinda see that it is actually one long, continuous ribbon of tulle. But what you can't see is that the ribbon is actually about 3" wide and sewn up the middle, so the whole ribbon is actually two pieces of material right next to each other (gives it a nice fluffy look). That made it a pain in the ass to color properly... I pretty much had to do each area twice to make sure the color was the same on both sides, all the way to the seam in the middle.

    Overall, it has been a big project of love, and I would do it again 1000%. Not only does the dress now feel like "me" color and design wise, but all the work I put into it makes it feel even more special.

    I absolutely recommend working on a dress to make it your own! Just try to be flexible in your creativity since one technique might work for one dress but not another. Good luck and let me know when you find or make your perfect non-white dress!

Hello! First of all thank you so much you are a sweetheart. So full disclosure - yes I did do shading and blending mainly for flower here - but this is originally a grey-scale drawing so that helps a lot as a lot of the shading is already there, and I make it pop with the blending I then do with the markers.

These are the markers I use

They are relatively easy to blend if you test the colors beforehand. Obviously you can't blend all of them. I recommend working in small circles when you blend. And you should totally try out these markers, they're pretty cheap and give some great effects!

I need these for my art therapy. I'm running out of time to get my supplies. I totally understand if you don't pick me, cause this is a really silly need.
