I needed to dye sky blue again. This isn’t too easy since blue is the primary colour and, you are relying on the dye for the colour. You cannot mix with another dye and, unlike water colour, there is no white to soften the blue. I experimented with Navy blue and turquoise.
My designer also suggested to make one for the sunset effect. I have been dyeing many pieces. There may not be many authors who spends hours making props, but I enjoy this, too.
Acid dye is for animal fibres as wool and silk. If you want to dye cotton, you will need a different type. For Omega dye, please see their website; http://www.omegadyes.co.uk/
Caution must be taken when you are handling the dye powder since it is toxic if it is inhaled. Once dissolved, it is safe.
Chemical dye is so easy and fun. It is certainly worth a try.
