The dyes I use

I use a variety of types of dye, sometimes in combination.  These include

Synthetic, including Fibre Reactive and Acid dyes

Natural, including a wide range of plant materials, both with and without a mordant.

Not all dyes are substantive (permanent).  Some are fugitive (don’t last) and therefore create an ever changing surface.

All types of dyeing involve a chemical reaction, so both synthetic and natural dyes can be considered ‘chemical’ regardless of how ‘safe’ the original dyestuff.
