Think Tangerine

Tangerine Orange fabric dye is versatile. It can be bright and bold or used to make lighter shade. To create a custom colour adjust the amount of dye used to get an apricot or peach colour. When more dye tis used the colour will be brighter or deeper, when less dye tis used the colour looks lighter.
