One artist that is showcasing his tie-dyed creations is Zak Syroka. His pieces stand out because they are mainly done on distressed jeans.
Gaining Attention With Tie-dye Pants
Syroka is a lighting designer by day, but in his free time, he likes creating handmade tie-dye pieces. Originally, he had no plans to start his own clothing brand because he just wanted to make stylish pants for himself. When he first wore them out in public, many people kept asking him about them. He began to make custom pairs for his friends, and it quickly spread to him making pants for others.
The technique that Syroka uses is different from standard tie-dying methods. His creations typically include color-blocking techniques, which are what make them so unique. He creates the designs on Wrangler jeans because, according to Syroka, they make everyone’s butt look amazing. The pants have a groovy stained glass effect when they are finished with hues of dandelion, aqua, and poppy. He has made other pairs using color combinations like orange and yellow, or purple and blue.
Learning Color Theory
Each piece is thoroughly planned out before beginning, which is something new that he focuses on. He looks back at some of his first creations and thinks that the pieces he is creating now look better because of the color choices. He didn’t think about the color theory from the beginning, but Syroka is now expanding his color palette.
He is still looking to perfect his tie-dying process and will only reveal that he is using powder pigments.
