Step by Step Dye Technique
  1. Choose any Nylon filament.
  2. Cover work area with a plastic table cover or newspaper and have paper towels or sponges handy to protect against any possible spills.
  3. Wear rubber gloves to protect hands from getting stained and to insulate them when working with hot water.
  4. Use plastic buckets or stainless steel pots for the dye bath. You can also dye in a stainless steel sink. Don’t dye or rinse items in a porcelain or fiberglass sink or tub as they are likely to get stained.
  5. Dissolve powder dye thoroughly in 2 cups of very hot water first to avoid dye spotting. Stir dissolved powder dye into dye bath until evenly dispersed. Never pour powder dye directly unless looking to achieve a creative effect.
  6. Be sure to use enough dye for the weight or size of the project. For example, for a 10 meter filament, use tip of the teaspoon of the powder. Depending on the results desire add more powder to make strong colours.
  7. Leave the filament in the bath for 30min minimum.
  8. If dyeing filament more than one colour, it’s usually best to start with the lightest colour and move to the darkest.
  9. When you remove filament from dye bath, rinse in warm, then cool water until water runs clear. (Warm water helps to rinse off surface dye more effectively.)
  10. Dry your filament before use.
