Starting dyeing

I started with drink mix powder and liquid food coloring. It's non toxic and smells pretty good when you're working with it. I'd like to get into the chemical dyes but don't have a space to do so while I'm staying with mom.

I'm thinking of starting to dye are there any tips? Thanks in advance!

 

Yes, the biggest tip I'd give anyone beginning to dye is make sure you are careful about your workspace if you are using chemical dyes. You must, must, must wear a face mask just to be sure you don't inhale any of the fine powders used for dyeing. My preference is to keep the dyeing out of the house if you can...I had to wait to be able to do this but I'm so glad I can now... Any pots or other things you use for dyeing, use exclusively for dyeing. And oh yes, the gloves...use gloves all the time unless you want stained fingers...LOL I also wear old clothes when doing it because everytime I get something on me guaranteed! LOL
