dye fur with acid dye
  • hi
    really intresed in dye fur
    and wonder if anyone know if it works with acids and if there are any precautions i need to take before staring
    like could the fabric felt (like angora) or will the skin harden and will it die evenly or will i need to come the hairs?
  • Hi,
    Acid dyes are good on protein based fibers and fur is protein based. so it probably will work. However, there is the possibility that submerging the skin in the dye may harden it so I would do a test first. You may be able to paint the dye on to the fur if the dye is in sa sufficiently high saturation and get permanency without the need for steaming or boiling to fix the colors. Again I would test these before going into production.
