Vaseline

Postby Hoey » Tue Jul 22, 2008 3:42 pm

I've heard some dyers use this to keep the dye from going to the places the vaseline is applied.

Just wanted to see if anyone here has used this technique and what the results were.

I'm still working on my colors looking nice (and not like dookie) outside of the dipping method (which works awesome).

I use elmers glue, easy to apply, easy to remove. Just make sure it's dry before dipping. I've never tried vasoline. Let me know how it works.

That's what I have used as well. Works well.

Never used it for dyes, but I used Vaseline in the past to mask off surfaces while spray painting (Easier to fill recessed surfaces with Vaseline than to try and mask them off) and it works great.

I have used vaseline to mask off areas before. It is hard to do and you have to be careful to not get it on areas you want dyed. Done properly you get very sharp lines and zero bleed.

Here are a couple dyes I did using vaseline to mask the lines. The lines appear slightly blurry because the dyes are a couple years old and have bled some over time.

I used hot glue the other day. Worked well, set up fast and came off in one piece.

Do you have a picture? I'd like to see how that turned out.

Is this the method used if you want to do a multi color dye without remasking if you don't want two of your lighter colors to blend?

I usually remask with vaseline after every color. Usually I'll do the lightest color first and then put the darker color on top of it. I also use a brush to apply the dye which makes doing multi-color stuff easier.
