Re: [BKARTS] Vellum Dye

<<Patricia, what brand of dye did you use?>>

I used Tinfix purchased from Dharma.  It was the only silk (another protein.
I think) dye that also said it could be used on leather.  I soaked the
vellum, changed the water and added the dye to the water with the vellum in
it. I tried applying dye directly to the wet vellum with a wool daubber but
you had to be very careful or you got stripes--the darker the dye the easier
to get a more even the color.
