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.
