Printing onto Synthetic Materials. My own Textile Design



Here i have dyed onto polyester. Polyester is a synthetic material that is a man-made fibre therefore you cannot use natural dyes like cellulose dyes, procion and some acid dyes as it doesn’t work as-well and the dye doesn’t cling onto the fibre as well as a synthetic dye like some acid dyes and disperse dyes.

When i printed these polyester pieces i used Disperse dyes to print. I used stencils to create the shapes onto the textile fibre.

I feel that this went very well considering these examples i am showing are my very first attempt at printing during my 1st year in my degree.
