Dye for feathers
  • I originally wanted to use "silver grey" Jacquard silk dye for dying feathers for my halloween costume, but no store carries silk dyes in my area. What could be my best substitute for a dye?
  • Typically you want to use acid dyes for feathers. In a pinch you could try painting them with DyeNaFlow, or thinned down Textile and Lumiere. If you have fluffy feathers the paints will probably make them clumpy, so test it out before you make a big committment.


    Good luck!
