solarfast black dye problems
  • I used watercolor paper and got a good print; but the black solarfast dye became quite blue. What am I doing wrong?
  • Hi Scriba,

    Thanks for your question.
    The Black is a very blue toned black, however, when rinsed well usually moves to a nice black. Did you use hot water?
    Also, most watercolor papers have a sizing on them - that may have interfered with the uptake of portions of the dye.

    I'm happy to discuss this in length with you if you'd like to call into the office - 800 442 0455.
