Natural Dye Kit- Direct Dye
This Direct Dye Kit was made to inspire you to create with the harvest from the earth. I have been gathering plants to dye for my own work and wanted to share the bounty with you.
Inside you will find everything needed to get started working with natural dyes. The color palette are the shades of purple, pink, charcoal, and warm tea tones. With this technique they are mainly coaxed from the plants by using little water and heat combined with time. The results are magical!
Inside you will find:
Hollyhock .5 oz
Roses 1 oz
Tea Blend 1 oz
Ferrous Sulfate .5 oz
Aluminum Sulfate .5 oz
Iron washers 2
Pair of wood clamp boards
