Past Custom Tie Dye Commissions


Browse some of the custom commissions I've completed over the years

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!


࿊ 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: 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).

Pictured above & left: a custom order for a few hundred rainbow sunburst tees, designed to allow for a logo to be screen-printed on the upper right side. In this instance, the buyer provided images of the design needed, as nothing of the sort was depicted as an option on the site at the time of their request.

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: one of many 15' x 5' ft cuts of fabric, a total of 585ft, custom-dyed in the bubblegum spiral tie dye design to be used as tablecloths for a charity event. 

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). 


Up close look at a special request in progress with ice and rainbow colored dye powder on top; for a custom ice dyed baseball jersey

The original psychedelic aquascape design that the Dickie's tee pictured above was inspired byPictured above: a custom ice dyed Dickie's men's pocket t-shirt. In this situation, someone ordered their preferred type of blank tee online and requested a recreation of this size large psychedelic aquascape t-shirt design (pictured left). 
If your favorite brand, etc. isn't offered by Paradisiac Dyes directly, you're always more than welcome to provide your own clothing item(s) to be dyed, just like the Dickie's tee and jersey both were!

Similarly, this dress (pictured left) was one that was provided by the buyer, who described the general colors they'd like and requested it be made in the psychedelic symmetrical ice dye design

Meanwhile, this dress (pictured right) was found at a thrift shop, then brought in for a rainbow makeover. 





This section features side-by-side photos comparing original designs that were requested in a different size, shirt style, etc. The purpose is to highlight just how much variance may occur between two finished designs, despite being made in essentially the same exact colors and general pattern.
Some designs, (like psychedelic mindscapes, for example), feature highly unpredictable, always unique results; making them difficult to replicate extraordinarily similarly, in most cases. Just scroll down to see what I mean for yourself...

If you'd like to explore more of my past one of a kind designs, check out the Tie Dye Hall of Stains; a photo gallery dedicated to showcasing sold-out designs specifically. A helpful resource designed for those searching for their long lost favorite design(s) that they're no longer able to find. If that's the case, there's a good chance it might've migrated there (and if it did, feel free to grab a screenshot to include when you request your very own custom replica)!
