I played about a bit and bought some to play at home with from Kemtex but found the process difficult to incorporate the process into digital surface design. However, there was a way and through much experimenting I found that if you coloured in photocopies with the dysperse dye and heat press the garment you get a wonderful duplicate of your photocopy, not only in the colours you want but also you get an un-coloured outline. This is where the photocopy carbon blocks the dyes from the fabrics.... its fantastic... and contains a digital element!
so with thanks to a little help from Becs, here is the guide to dysperse dyes
STEP 1Get your dyes and you SYNTHETIC (very very important) fabrics and paint away!
Set the heat press to 187 for 30 seconds or set your iron to its hottest temperature.
Lay your fabric on the table first...and your (dry) image face down on top.
Lay baking paper on top of everything to protect it all.
Press down and wait or
Iron evenly... the moment you think its done..do it for another 30 secs...moving the iron constantly!
Lift and peel off the image
You can sort of see the white photocopy blocked marks in these last two. (sorry about the photos)
I adore this last one.....
