How to tone down a bright color
  • HI there,
    I just dyed two expensive pieces of linen with the deep orange which turned out to be quite bright and the other golden yellow also fairly bright. If I want the color to be more muted/natural looking is there something I can do? Is there another color I can immerse them in that will help to soften or maybe even darken the color?
  • Hi Michelle,

    Thank you for your question.
    Toning colors can be done. Your best bet will be to take a look at a color wheel, decide which direction you'd like to go with the color and then overdye with the suggested toner. I would recommend using just a bit of the toning color, especially if you are trying to go just a bit darker.
    If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask!
