Dyeing mother of pearl
  • We are jewelry makers and not involved with fabrics, however we have heard that some dyes can be used with mother of pearl because they are not really stone and can be classified of organic.
    I would appreciate advice from anyone experienced with dyeing mother of pearl (shell), and techniques that have been successful.

  • Hi Jon,

    Thanks for writing in.
    There are a couple different dyes that will color shell or bone. The type that we recommend for best results are the Basic Dyes. We carry these in our Bulk and Specialty Store at this link: http://store.jacquardproducts.com/category_colors/dyes_basic-dye/. If you would like more information let me know and we can discuss this further.
