Colors used in photographs: Sunshine Orange, Evening Blue, Scarlet, Fuchsia, Lemon Yellow, Violet, Apple Green, Golden Yellow White Buttons Measuring Cup Measuring Spoons Disposable Plastic Containers for dyeing buttons Spoon for mixing dyes Rubber Gloves Plastic Table Cover Paper Towels Instructions Cover work surface with a plastic table cover. Decide what colors you like and prepare dye according to the basic recipe below. Liquid dyes are more concentrated than powder dyes so use half as much dye. Always test color with fabric scrap or paper towel before dyeing buttons. If color is too light, add more dye; if it is too dark, add more water. Basic Recipe: Measure and mix 1 teaspoon liquid dye or 2 teaspoons powder dye with 1 Cup HOT Water. Shake liquid dyes before measuring. Water should be about 140°F. If your tap water is not hot enough, heat some in the microwave or a tea kettle. Pour dye and water into a plastic container; stir. Make sure container is deep enough. Immerse buttons in dye solution for 2 to 5 minutes. Stir occasionally and check color frequently. Remove buttons when desired color is achieved. Rinse buttons. Then wash with soap and water, rinse and dry with paper towels. Supplies Needed Rit Liquid or Powder Dye: Any color or mix dye to create a custom color.
