Are you trying to get perfect rust dye prints in traditional colours but having to use smelly vinegars or wait weeks for salt to take effect and risk damage to your fabric/paper? Or have you never had a go and want to experiment with getting the beautiful natural colours of rusty oranges and browns into fabric and paper? This rust dye formula in Bright will get those tones for you in as little as 24 – 48 hours without the nasty smells and without degrading your dyed material.
The method is simple, place your already rusty objects on your chosen pre-wetted fabric or paper and spray with the rust dye formula. You can then place another layer of fabric or paper over the top as long as it is in direct contact with the objects. It is the contact that makes the mark. You can roll if you desire.
The whole thing must also be allowed to dry out as part of the process and if has not taken on as much colour as you like you can respray with water to reactivate.
Once happy with the tone and rust marks wash out the remaining formula to return the original fabric/paper colour in the undyed areas.
The effects are permanent and need no further fixing or pre-treatment.
Not suitable for use by under 18’s. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Wear protective gloves, clothing, eye protection.
