Hi,
I hope someone can help you more than I can, but I've tried with fondant many times to get a true tie dye look, but I can't do it. So I airbrush my fondant to look tie dye.... I have also hand painted it... just paint a swirl of each color, then go back with your brush and blend the colors together on the edges...works pretty good.

Here is a picture I saved. Maybe you can pm this person to find out how they did it.

For that photo, it looks like they "marbelized" the fondant.

I agree that the fondant looks marblized to me. I found this thread that might be of some help.

I've done a tie dye cake and I was planning on marbelizing the fondant to cover my cake, but I didn't think it achieved the looks I was going for. I ended up using the marbelized fondant for my peace signs on top of the cake and for my rose...I covered the cake in MMF and airbrushed the tie dye design onto the cake...

I just did one of these. I just colored fondant and then mashed them together and then rolled it out. Don't do too much, just enough for the tier you're covered as it's one and done - you can't reroll for the next tier as it just turns brown.

Here's the link to the pic of my cake:
