Re: [Marbling] Plant dyes
- Jan 22 Expand MessagesView SourceHi!I have had a class on natural dyes (so much to learn) and done some reading. As near as I can tell, natural dyes are dissolved in water, and as such, would just disperse into the marbling bath. Fiber reactive and acid dyes do that as well. But I think it is a great idea! Paints have a binder to hold the pigment, and so, will float under the "right" conditions.
