Pastel Dye Projects For Spring

1 comment #TintexDye

Spring is here, so it is a great time to update the old and add more light pastel colours to your dyeing projects. Even bright Tintex colours can make the most beautiful pastels. For lighter colours, just use smaller amounts of any core dye. 

Mix 1/4 tsp of brilliant yellow + 1/4 tsp of tan beige + 1/8 tsp of scarlet red to make peach. Use 1/8 tsp of Brilliant Yellow to make ivory or cream.
