Clarke Colours dyes are specially formulated for dyeing fresh and glycerine dried flowers and foliage. The dyes are easily used for a variety of other applications such as coral, wood, wicker work etc. and produce clean, clear and attractive finishes.
Dyes are available in both single and double strengths. The results obtained will depend on dilution of the dye, the water quality and the nature of material being dyed. Hot solutions of dye may improve colour in certain instances. For specific species of grasses and flowers the quantity of dye and drying time may be required to be reduced. (See colour chart below).
