Terracotta Ink


Terracotta Natural Dye Pigment Ink is one of the most complex of my recipes consisting  of no less than four dyes which create a very pigment rich complex colour.
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.
