Post by megaflies on Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:46 pm

follwing my other post about dying materials i have been doing some of my new materials

This is my glister sparkle dubbing

all the following colours are from using the 3 primary colours

i also recorded all colour combos and weights for each colour, that way i can reproduce time and time again.

they are just normall pure uncut acid dyes. (single colour primarys)

i have found that normall shop bought dyes and wholesaler fly tying dyes can be weak and not mixed correctly, even dilluted with salt, so you end up with different shades.
