Welcome to the world of
Tie-Dye Paul and 3rd Eye Candy Productions.

Our studio specializes in one-of-a-kind interpretive art for the inner and outer eyes. This is NOT your father's tie dye.

Paul has produced truly original stage backdrops for musicians including three sets for The String Cheese Incident and one triptych-inspired set for Yonder Mountain String Band.
Our dyes were featured in Steve Kimock's live DVD along with stunning projection by Visions of GAK. Projection onto a colored screen? you bet!

With a major turning point in our lives, 3rd Eye Candy has also undergone change. We are grateful for all the support we have had over the past 13 years, and look forward to creating new energies and events. We are available for rent for your event. Concerts, weddings, parties. contact us at Tie Dye Paul for pricing and details.

You can spot his work as stage wear on members of Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler, Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon, Steve Kimock (check out his latest CD cover), String Cheese Incident, Ratdog's Mark Karan, the Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh and others.

The original tapestry, "There," is 10 feet square.
Celebrating 10 years of psychedelic madness!

Using millenium-old techniques from around the world, Paul translates music to visual art. Hundreds of tiny stitches are hand-sewn into cloth to create the resist (the "folds and rubber bands" of other dyes). The cloth is dyed and the stitches are removed by hand.
Despite the name, what Paul does is light-years beyond any tie dye available in the world. We use tratik and shibori techniques from the East and folding techniques from Western Africa.

No sloppy, production-line, made-by-the-dozen garments.
Each garment, like each recipient, is an individual work of art
