Photoshop Tie-Dye Tutorial by Sagittarianism Photoshop Tie-Dye Tutorial by Sagittarianism
This tutorial I made for a tie-dye effect assumes you're a beginner. The brushes I used are by :iconjavierzhx: (go to his page; his abstract and vector work is amazing!) and can be found here: fav.me/dpyet5

For those of you who don't know how to install a brush set, save it along this path for a standard PC (mine has Windows 7): C://Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS3/Presets/Brushes

I hope this is to your liking. I had fun doing it. :)

Let me know if it helps. And if you use it, I'd like to see the results!

Download for best view.

(And go thank ~JavierZhX for making those amazing giant brushes; they really make this easier!)

:peace:

Note: you can also improve your tie-dye look by right-clicking on the sunburst layer and choosing Blending Options, clicking on the Outer Glow option in the dialog box, and changing the color to match your color scheme and size of the glow to create an effect like this: fav.me/d3a6pai
Or this: fav.me/d30z6ur
Or this: fav.me/d366k3u
I hope that helps.

Edit: I changed the whole tutorial so that it's all in one file. Have fun with the revamped version!

Thanks, Pat! :) Yeah, I didn't either until I had that happy accident in which I discovered how to do this. Be sure to check out the second part of the tutorial where you can make it look more realistic. :nod:
:D You're welcome. Glad it helped. :)

Hey apps,

Good tutorial!, its clear takes enough steps! :)
I like it!

You could also add a extra optional step in which you
play with the blur tool(s) giving it more a "wash" feeling
because the use to make those Shirts/flags/what not's
with allot of water and liquid paints :D

Hey Tom!

Glad you like it! I hope you can follow what it says; I might not have been clear enough since I've been using that technique for over 2 years and it has become second nature to me. :)

I'll see what I can do about that; I might be able to make an extension to the tutorial if people like it enough. :)

:peace:

Yeah you are clear enough :D
I tried to say that in my last
comment but now that I re-read
it I get that it is a bit unclear.
(haha, started with your clear,
ended on my unclear xD)
