When painting dye on fabric I use either Liquid Radiance or Sun Dyes. They are virtually the same product and I use them separately or a combination of both, as they give me the same results for my preferred techniques. If you have sen my HUGE Australia quilt all 6.5m of it was painted using my Sun Dyes.
Sun Dyes are an Australian product and are finely milled acrylic colour that acts like a dye and can be used to dye fabric with all different techniques as well as Sun Printing or as I love to use them, painting with them directly onto fabric, in a watercolour style.
My online class Arty Farty Sunflowers demonstrates the techniques I use and the only difference between Liquid Radiance and Sun Dyes as a product option, is the concentration of each product which affects the dilution ratio. Sun Dyes are a concentrate that is brightest and gives the best results when diluted with water in a ratio of 1:2.
I have put together a set of 9 colours (130ml bottles) including:
Wattle – yellow
Galah – pink
Opal – sky blue
Indigo – dark blue
Grape – purple
Tarragon – green
Clay – Tan
Flame – red
Currawong – black
With these 9 colours I will include a 8mm square end paint brush and a Frixion pen.
$8/ bottle x 9 colours= $72 +BONUS Frixion pen $3 +BONUS Brush $3.
I suggest you purchase some unwashed calico/muslin and some rock salt and a white ice cube tray as a palette and we get this Arty Farty Party started.
These bottles can be purchased individually for $8 each for 130ml bottle (concentrate).
Individually, these colours are not on my website but you can order them individually by emailing me your requirements. [email protected]
