    I separated each ring, but then I needed to colour them. I didn't have any fabric dye, so I've used watered down acrylic paint, waited for it to dry, and then applied a clear coat of water based varnish. Of course, this method would only be suitable for items that are not designed to be washed.

inko dye. - This is light sensitive dye that you paint onto fabric. Then put objects or photo negatives on it and let it expose in the sun. Wash it and you've got yourself some custom printed fabric. I have a set of the dye and I'd be happy to bring it to the craft night sometime. :)
