New Food coloring Dyes


Woven N Spun

Recommended Posts

I found new McCormick Food color dyes this week.

They are NEON colors of green, purple, pink, and blue.

 

You would use them just like you do kool aid.

 

Here is a skein I made mixing the pink and blue to make a turquoise/mauve skein. I also made a purple skein which is currently in use and not photo graphed

Rebecca,

 

I used the color chart on the back of the NEON box and

I unwound a hank of Fisherman's wool shoving half of the skein in a mason jar full of the turquoise and the other half in the dusty rose side. I put in an steamer pot on the stove and simmered about 25 minutes until the dye was gone.

 

Turquoise : 10 drops blue and 3 drops pink

Dusty Rose: 6 drips pink and 1 drop blue

 

Hope that helps a little bit.

 

Am hoping once it's felted up it turns out as pretty as it's looking right now.
