Dyeing Levis Jeans

I would like to dye a pair of Levis back to a darker color. I have often dyed denim, but I want the Levis label in the back (with the size) to remain unchanged, as well as the red tag on the rear pocket. I was wondering if I could paint them with paraffin to prevent the dye from working on those areas. Do you think this has any hope of working? Thank you!

Dear Shana,
you could try it. In general, tags are made of polyester which will not take dye. I don’t know about the size tag, it might stain slightly. Dharma Trading Co sells products made to contain or resist dyes, called “resists.” You could check those out too!
best,
Jennifer
