What you'll do
First, look at sample fabrics we have printed here at Runaway Press to learn more about how wax is used as a resist on fabrics. Then, peruse my selection of patterns and my color swatches and dream up your own customized combination of patterns and colors. Third, practice printing your selected patterns onto sample fabrics and finally dive in to print your own towels. Finish the project by learning the basics of fiber reactive dye mixing, submerge your pieces in your selected color, and let us do the rest. We will boil your cotton towels once the color has been permanently fixed, and we'll ship the order to you the following week.
