Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Dye techniques for T-shirts

Dye a T-shirt with the desired pattern, or at least a minimally predictable pattern, it is not a random challenge, today we share with you some techniques you can use, you can check the information on dying techniques here: Stamp and dye t-shirts, summer DIY.

Make sure the rubber bands are tight!

Knot technique
  • Grab the T-shirt on both ends and twist it, like a rope,
  • Tie a knot in the fabric. 
  • Place the T-shirt in a plain surface.
  • Place your thumb on the fabric; exactly in the place you want the spiral central.
  • Use your fingers to secure the fabric in place, and start to twist.
  • After each twist, with your free hand, flatten the fabric to prevent the spiral to fall apart.
  • At the end of the twists you must have something that looks like a giant flattened biscuit;
  • Put the rubber bands in place, like the picture.
  • This effect creates a pattern of overlapping or close circles;
  • Use a pencil to mark on the t-shirt a few points, these points will be the center of the dyed circles;
  • Use the thumb and forefinger to pick up the fabric in the same place you painted the point;
  • Hold this "tab" with the other hand;
  • Repeat the process for all the dots;
  • When finished you must have several of this "tabs" in your hand.
  • Wrap a rubber band around each "tab", and wrap 2 or 3 around all the set.
  • Wrap the t-shirt forming a long tube. The lists will be dyed perpendicular to the tube.
  • Squeeze the tube with the rubber bands, the more the bands are spaced thicker will be the lists.
