Alter Ego Dyeing Instructions

Six steps to dyeing:

  1. Put Lukewarm water in a saucepan.
  2. Add the two colors (silk and viscose), the fixative, the vinegar, and the cooking salt. MIX WELL!
    NOTE: The colors will be mixed in the water but they will separate again on the fabric.
  3. Rinse the fabric in lukewarm water, squeeze it out and while still damp put it in the saucepan (the salt will not dissolve completely).
  4. Put the saucepan on low heat and stir during 5 minutes in order to homogenize the dyes, then increase the heat up to boiling for 20 minutes.
    After that, keep at a simmer for 20 minutes.
    Turn the heat off and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Rinse under running water and then wash in lukewarm soapy water. Finish rinsing in clear water and squeeze out the fabric.
  6. Lay the fabric flat on an absorbent paper to dry or, better still, iron the fabric on the wrong side protecting it with an absorbent paper.
