This heavily pigmented dye is guaranteed to penetrate leather and form a lasting color which will not peel, crack, or wash off. Angelus dyes can also be diluted for desired color results. Excellent for use in manufacturing or re-coloring saddles, tack, shoes, belts, purses, wood and more. Also used by gourd artists. Available in a 3 oz. jar and includes a wool dauber.
Jacquard Acid Dyes produce the brightest, most brilliant colors possible for protein fibers such as silk, wool, cashmere, alpaca, feathers and nylon. Used for yarn and garment dyeing (immersion method) or for painting and printing applications (using steam setting), these colors can be mixed to produce practically any color in the spectrum! Extremely brilliant and colorfast, they are very easy to use and produce a uniform dye job. A half ounce bottle will color up to two pounds of fiber depending on the depth of shade.
Minerals in untreated, hard water can interfere with dye reaction. Calgon is a water softener which neutralizes metallic ions in tap water, allowing for a deeper, more level dyeing. It is also used to soften the water in marbling and other textile arts where minerals might interfere with the process.
Cochineal is among the most ancient and versatile natural dyes on the planet. It has excellent light and washfastness properties and produces a beautiful range of reds, scarlets, violets, fuchsias and purples. Permanent on all natural fibers, cochineal is often used with a mordant such as alum. The color (carminic acid) comes from the bodies of female insects of the species Dactylopius coccus. These parasitic insects are farmed on the prickly pear cactus (nopal), which is native to Mexico, Central and South America.

These colors are true dyes, not thinned pigments, so that when the silk is decorated, it retains its natural luster and soft texture. These rich beautiful colors can be blended or thinned to obtain virtually any desired hue or shade. The colors are lightfast, odorless, non-toxic, contain no alcohol and can be hand washed or dry-cleaned. Green Label dyes are formulated for use directly out of the bottle, a convenience appreciated by beginners and professionals alike.
Resist is used to draw the outline of an image on silk. Used with liquid dyes, the Gutta stops the flow of dye at the resist lines. Jacquard's Gutta Resist is made from natural Gutta Percha which produces the finest resist available. Any resist should be completely dry before applying dye. Gutta is removed from fabric by dry-cleaning. Colored guttas are intended to remain on the fabric and should not be dry-cleaned.

This kit brings the ancient art of indigo dyeing to the home dyer in a user-friendly formulation.

No Flow is an antifusant that will inhibit the spreading of dyes on fabric. It is particularly useful for drawing or writing with dye filled felt tip markers, fabric pens or brushes (with liquid dyes or paints). No Flow dries clear and rinses out with warm water. Apply No Flow with a brush or sponge to the entire area you wish to write on or paint. When dry, apply colors using the technique of your choice. Using No Flow for a signature or logo creates crisp, clear letters or images. After paint or dyes have been set, rinse No Flow out of fabric to restore original softness.
This natural vat dye exists in plants all over the world and is virtually the only blue dye that occurs in nature. Indigo has a fascinating history, and it is equally fascinating to use: The blue color “magically” appears as dipped fabric is exposed to oxygen in the air! This unique property sets indigo apart from every other dye and makes it especially well-suited for patterning fabric. The dye produces a wide range of blues, from a pale sky blue to the darkest navy. Prized by countless cultures for millennia, indigo is still used today for coloring blue jeans. Jacquard’s indigo is a synthetic organic and comes pre-reduced 60% for unprecedented ease of use.

Resist is used to draw the outline of an image on silk.

A derivative of seaweed, use this additive to thicken fabric dyes. It is used to control spreading when painting or screen printing. Use Sodium Alginate SH primarily on cotton or other cellulose fibers. It can also be used on silk when fine line definition is not required. Use Sodium Alginate F on silk and synthetics when fine line definition is required.
Synthrapol is used to prevent backstaining, which will result if the excess dye is not removed when dying. It is a mild soap specifically made to suspend and carry the dye from the fiber. Rinse the fiber thoroughly with a small amount of synthrapol, then add one tablespoon to each wash load when laundering the fresh dyes.
