Take a trip in the tie dye time machine and have a look at some of the projects I've completed throughout the past few years that you otherwise wouldn't see here on the site, or really anywhere else, for that matter.
This page is not only intended to be a portfolio of sorts; a place to showcase some of my past projects. But, also to serve as a reference point for those who may be considering entrusting Paradisiac Dyes with their next order for handmade, one of a kind tie dye!
ON THIS PAGE YOU'LL FIND:
࿊ Examples of custom requests
࿊ Special orders (ft. items sent-in by buyers to dye)
࿊ Plus, side-by-side comparisons that show just how much some (of the more difficult to recreate) designs may vary from the originals they were inspired by.
Custom requests are any tie-dyes made on items regularly offered for custom dyeing by Paradisiac Dyes. Many consist of the customer's choice of color combination and pattern, while some are recreations of/inspired by other designs I've made.
Pictured above: a custom pullover hoodie, made in a pink and blue/purple splatter gradient ice dyed design.
Pictured above: A custom request for four American Apparel Fine Jersey Unisex V-Neck style tees, made in a rainbow geode design, which features a totally different, unique pattern on each side!
Pictured above: a request for a random mix of finished, ready-to-ship tie dye tees to screen-print with their branding.
Pictured above & left: a custom order for a handful of tees, most of which were made in the buyer's choice of color combinations. Only a few were inspired by t-shirt designs already available on the site.
Pictured above: on the left is a photo of a customer's 25+ year old favorite tie dye shirt, and on the right is the recreation I came up with.
(In this particular instance, due to the significant difference between the two designs, I insisted that I'd be glad to take another shot at making a much more similar replica, but he'd adamantly turned down the offer and claimed to be happy with the results).
A super special custom order (sometimes also referred to as 'special orders') are slightly different from custom requests; the only distinction being that they all feature goods that were provided by the buyer to be custom dyed.
In some instances, people have chosen to send in their own long-time loved item(s) like comforters, blankets, or clothing.
In many cases, others have opted to order their preferred clothing online, or amount of fabric needed from a supplier, etc. Oftentimes, shipping the package directly to me to begin custom dyeing upon delivery, in order to save time and unnecessary, additional shipping costs.
In these scenarios, I obviously only charge for the cost of the dye job and return shipping. This is generally the most cost effective way to go when it comes to products that are not otherwise available options for custom requests.
Pictured above: three turtleneck long sleeve shirts sent by the buyer for a custom dye job. The left side photos are what they sent as inspiration for the colors and pattern desired for each turtleneck.
In this instance, the fabric was sent to me from a supplier of the buyer's choice.
Fabric by the yard is not something Paradisiac Dyes offers directly at this time. But, I'll be more than thrilled to custom dye any fabric that you choose provide, (so long as the dye job is doable by your deadline, of course).
Pictured above & right: a 100% cotton baseball jersey sent-in to be custom dyed in a rainbow psychedelic mindscape design. You can see more pics of this jersey before, in-the-making and finished on one of my behind-the-scenes blog posts!
If you'd like to explore more of my past one of a kind designs, check out the Tie Dye Hall of Stains; a collection that showcases sold-out designs specifically. This may be especially helpful if you're searching for a design you just know you saw before, but can't seem to locate again. There's a good chance it might be hiding out there (and if it is, feel free to grab a screenshot or copy the link, then request your very own custom replica)!
