Yellow Natural Dye Pigment Ink paints a bright yellow on paper and fabric with a lightfastness of 2 (see below) that mixes with blue to give a bright grass green and with black to give an olive green.
Did you know that most of the natural dye inks can be used as fabric paints ? Simply paint with them onto a clean scoured prepared fabric such as cotton or silk. Either allow to air set over 6 weeks or steam well wrapped in cling film from 20-30 minutes depending on weight of fabric
Inks are made in batches of ten and colours may vary slightly from batch to batch
Lighfastness is measured by placing painted samples in a southwest facing skylight for one month and are graded as follows.
No fading lightfastness of 1.
Slight fading lightfastnss of 2
Loss of colour lighfastness of 3.
Each batch of ink will vary slightly from previous batches due to variation in dyes.
The inks are thickened and stabilised to run smoothly on water colour paper which gives a slighlty crisp feel when painted onto fabric,
