Default Re: Dying furs

My first experience dying I wasted more material than it was worth. With experience it probably wouldn't be that way. Here's why. Dye only comes in a few colors and needs to have different colors mixed to get the color you want (I was trying for golden olive). Once mixed and boiling in the pan it hardly resembles the color you want. It is very dark. You must throw in some of your material, and keep doing that until it's right. Then it's going to dry a slightly different color. I avoid it now if I can. Remember this is only one guys opinion. Sorry to sound bleak about it. Just haven't had the best of luck dying.
