> PYSANKY DYES
Colors shown are similar , but not exact and are for reference only.
|These NON-EDIBLE Pysanky dyes are called
aniline dyes, which are the same types of colors used on
textiles. They are typically more vivid than
standard food coloring, which you find in the
supermarket. The original Pysanky dyes were made
from plants and minerals that were easily found in nature,
such as onion skins and tree bark. Each of these dye
packets makes 1 - 1/4 cup of non-edible water soluble
dyeing solution. They have been approved by a licensed
toxicologist as non hazardous to health when used as
directed. You will need to buy distilled water, white
vinegar, and containers for mixing and storing the
solutions. (Wide mouth glass jars with tight sealing lids
work best.) The solution will last a long time
if kept sealed and stored in a cool dry place, and if you
take care to prevent egg leakage in the solution.
Remember, NEVER add vinegar to either the Orange or Gold
