* * * FREE SHIPPING WITHIN USA * * * NATURAL DYE | Color Shift Kit | CUTCH DYE (plant) Cutch Dye = Vivid Caramels shifting to Deep Chocolates ------------------------------------------------------ Welcome to the Amazing World of Natural Dye! You're in the right place! The NATURAL DYE :: COLOR SHIFT KIT is the perfect place to start exploring the gorgeous color of Natural Dye. It's a place where Science, Math and Art intersect. And it's truly a space of limitless exploration and experimentation. This kit includes an Instruction Booklet that will walk you through the process of using Natural Dyes & Mordants (otherwise known as Fixatives/Fixers) safely, efficiently and with care. It will give you the opportunity to dye not just one color, but to shift one color into multiple hues with a simple Post-Mordant Bath. 1 Dye = 2 Colors! *** Wanna know more about it? Check out this quick video on Youtube: http://bit.ly/2IjBPt9 The Natural Dye Color Shift Kit will take you through the processes of preparing and using: ~ Mordant to permanently fix the dye so it's wash-fast and light-fast, ~ Natural Dye (Cutch) to dye color into your fiber, ~ & Post-Mordant to shift the color derived from dyeing into other hues. This kit is perfect for anyone wishing to learn about the basics of Natural Dyeing. It's especially perfect for the fiber-enthusiast--think knitters, crocheters, sewers, weavers, and more. Anyone working with yarn/thread/fabric/textiles has wondered what it'd be like to dye their own items to get that perfect shade or hue. The kit is equally fun for artists + crafters, designers + decor-lovers, science-math-geeks, teens, (older) kids + homeschoolers (with adult supervision) & home-chefs who've wondered about the process of cooking up color. And, this kit contains everything needed to get started. It's got plenty of samples of different fiber types, both yarn and fabric, to explore the varying results. And, when finished experimenting with the included samples, there will be plenty of mordants and dye left for you to play with dyeing your own item(s) (the dye will continue, but will gradually fade into lighter tones). KIT INCLUDES: ---------------- * 1 pack of Natural Dye - Cutch * Vegan * 1 pack of Pre-Mordant - Alum * 1 pack of Post-Mordant - Iron * Set of 3 Different Fabric Samples * Set of 4 Different Fiber Samples * Instructions Booklet WHAT YOU WILL NEED: -------------------------- * An Apron or Old Clothes / Gloves * A Pot (preferably stainless steel or aluminum--not to be used with food afterward) * A Stirring Tool / Tongs / Spoon (preferably wooden, stainless steel, aluminum or plastic--not to be used with food afterward) * A Mixing Cup (paper/plastic work fine--not to be used with food afterward) * A pH-Neutral Soap (Dawn, Washing Soda, Sodium Carbonate, Soda Ash, Sal Soda, Synthropol all work perfectly) * A Place to Hang Samples and Dyed Items to Dry * OPTIONAL: Fabric/Fiber to Experiment With -- There'll be plenty of leftover Mordant to soak your item(s) in and dye in the dye pot. ABOUT CUTCH ----------------- SOURCE | Cutch is a natural dye from the heartwood of the Cutch Tree. COLOR | It dyes in gorgeous shades of golden caramel, taupe, tans, fawns, red-browns, and browns to dark umbers. USE | A little of this dye will go a long way. 20 grams will dye a varied quantity of items, dependent on the weight of those items and what shade of color you are looking for (dark, medium, lighter tones). To achieve a rich, dark color, use approximately 1:2 to 1:1 (weight of Cutch : weight of Dry Fabric). For lighter shades, use less dye. HISTORY | Cutch has been used to dye textiles for many thousands of years across the Middle East and into Asia. It has a beautiful, fragrant scent. ---------------------- NATURAL DYE FAQ ---------------------- * What can be dyed? Natural Dyes only adhere long-term to Natural Fibers. Natural Fibers include, but are not limited to: silk, linen, cotton, flax, hemp, ramie, rayon, bamboo, wool, mohair, alpaca, cashmere, etc. * Do I need anything else? To ensure long-lasting color results, Mordants are a must with each of these Natural Dyes. * Will my color be exactly as pictured? Your color results will be determined by how you approach the Natural Dye process (e.g. as in, what minerals are present in the water you use, what temperatures you heat to, which mordant you use, what type of metal pot you choose to mordant and dye in, what fiber type you're dying, etc.). Results vary widely. * Check out ANINI Designs more more fun Natural Dye Kits available! -------------- NEW!
