Orange Botanical Ink
Orange Natural Dye Pigment Ink gives a range of oranges depending on the number of layers. One layer gives a soft yellowy orange, two layers – as the photo almost a burnt orange. The colour takes a few minutes to develop on the paper.
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.
Inks are made in batches of ten and colours may vary slightly from batch to batch.
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
