|Ideas and Tips:
|(Don't be alarmed by the name, the only acid involved is vinegar)
Jacquard Acid Dyes produce the most vibrant colors possible on
protein fibers and nylon.
|These concentrated, powdered, hot water dyes are the best dyes available for silk, wool, cashmere, alpaca, feathers, and nylon. Extremely brilliant
and colorfast, these dyes 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.
Acid dyes are used both commercially and by the studio dyer to dye protein/animal fibers such as wool,
silk, mohair, angora, alpaca and some nylons and synthetics. Acid dyes require the use of an acid such
as vinegar to set the colour.
|Acid dyes sound scary to some novices, who imagine that the dyes themselves are caustic strong acids. In fact, the dyes are non-caustic,
are in many cases non-toxic, and are named for the mild acid (such as vinegar) used in the dying process, and for the types of bonds they
form to the fiber.
|This color chart represents as close to the
colors as possible.
Results will vary depending how strong a
solution is made and how long a piece is left
in the dye bath.
Always do a color test before doing
the entire piece.

Pearl Ex powders can be mixed into any media and applied to any surface! And the variety of finishes Pearl Ex
can produce is nearly endless. From metallic
|Pearl Ex creates a pearlized or metallic look without being a metal. The particles are flat platelets with two
surfaces, therefore it lays down beautifully like a thin coating of metal. The different particle sizes produce
different looks—from a fine, smooth, pearly luster to a highly metallic sheen.
It is a safe, non-toxic, inert powdered pigment with a neutral pH. It is extremely color fast and stable. It will
not tarnish or fade and is therefore ideal for archival applications.
Water soluble, archival, non-toxic, colourless, powder, easily mixed with water and dry pigments to
form watercolour paint.
Also as an adhesive, it forms a thin impenetrable film around particles, protecting them from
oxidization and absorption of moisture. It can be used as a thickening agent, increasing the gloss
and transparency of watercolour.
Gum Arabic is a binder medium that when mixed with dry pigments and water produces a glossy,
easy-to-brush paint. Use it for washes, glazes and stamping.
