Pinstripe Dye Job

This dye job was requested by an individual seeing some of my other work done on the site. So the client requested a mini pinstripe pattern inside in White and Red with a solid Black outside. At first I was skeptical about this one since I had never tried to cover one side of the head completely to keep it the original colors.

The Red and White portion was the easy part. I simply cut the strips and placed all cutting off the excess. I then dyed the head Red and removed the strips revealing the Red and White portion. This is wear it gets tricky. I started with two long stripes to cover the edges of the inside of the head. I had to be careful of the overlap because as most dyers know, water leaks.

So I began using hot glue on certain portions and overlaps to be sure that no leakage happened. After covering a large portion with hot glue and tape I then dyed it Black. This was the final result. Seeing how this one came out has me already excited about dyeing another one.
