Instructions
  1. Cover work area with plastic table cover and have paper towels handy to protect against any possible spills. Gather supplies.
  2. For best results, rinse faux flowers in cold water to remove any finishes that may interfere with dye absorption. Leave damp.
  3. Wearing rubber gloves, fill steel pot with 3 gallons of very hot water. The water should ideally be 180ºF.
  4. Add one bottle of Graphite dye to dyebath.
  5. To enhance the color, add 1 teaspoon of dish detergent to help promote level dyeing.
  6. Immerse flower heads in dyebath. 
  7. The flower heads can remain in dyebath from 10 minutes up to 30 minutes. When desired color is achieved, remove from dyebath. Fabric will look darker when wet and will dry lighter. Squeeze out excess dye.
  8. Rinse in cool water until water runs clear.
  9. Wash in warm water with mild detergent, rinse and dry.
