Food color dying






Because we’ve been talking about all sorts of different dying methods and different dyes i thought i’d show you how i usually dye my wool. this pdf shows dying fibre with food coloring and a steamer which is an inexpensive way to create lots of different colors. If you dont have a free standing electric steamer then just use your stove top with a pot and steam basket. It is a lot of fun to do this,  its quick and easy and the dye does hold up to wet felting but sometimes the red will run. If your dying fibre to use in needle felting then this technique is perfect.

    Thanks for that, Kaz 🙂
    I bought some food dyes a while ago but had no idea how to use them!
