I went to the library and found a couple books on tie dying. Possibly do a search on Google.

I used rubber bands and tied knots in the t-shirts and then diped one half in a color and the other half in another.
It is pretty simple and you can basically tie the knots how ever you want.

check out www.dharmatrading.com.
they have instructions i think posted on their site.... if not, if you send for a catalogue they definatly have instructions in that, as well as everything you could possibily need. THey sell both to folks just doing it for themselves as well as suppling resalers. They have a fun site, too.

I taught myself to tie dye using the virginia gleser book & there's also a few on-line tutorials. www.tiedyeguy.com ( I think ) has a good tutorial & he's really helpful too.
