Today I will be showing you how to make the tie-dye effect in Paint.net, like this:



Plugins needed:

toe_head2001's Droste

pyrochild's Curves+

Toli's Smooth (optional)



Step 1. Insert any texture, or just draw stuff. For this tutorial, I shall use the Paintbrush.



Step 2. Apply Droste. You can play with the settings to suit your mood, but I shall crank up the Repeat Per Turn option to max.



Step 3. Use any effective blur plugin. Zoom Blur will be used for this tutorial.



Step 4. Crank the saturation all the way up with Curves+. You may also maximize the Value if you don't want the ugly white bits. (Also, please ignore the error I made with the text in the next picture. The whole text.)



Step 5: You're done! You can use the Smooth plugin if you don't want all those choppy pixelly edges, but as you can see, I'm pretty sure I didn't use that on my tutorial result. What are the odds?


Well, this is the end of the tutorial. I'd love to see what you've come up with. Thanks!
