Blue Botanical Ink
Blue Natural Dye Pigment ink is made from the highest quality Natural Indigo and is a rich warm royal blue. Mixed with yellows it gives wonderful grassy greens.
All inks now come with aluminium cap and with the dropper separate. After using the ink, wash the dropper in clean water and replace cap on bottle. This prevents the dropper blocking up.
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 or in several layers of greaseproof paper from 20-30 minutes depending on weight of fabric.
If using Blue ink as a fabric paint, dilute by 50% before use or paint onto wet fabric, otherwise it may damage fine fabrics.
Blue Ink has a lightfastness of 2
Lightfastness 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 – lightfastness of 2
- Loss of colour – lightfastness of 3
