Coloring Brown Curtains

curtainsHi Jennifer, I hope you can help with this. I have brown cotton curtains that I would like to dye black or a burgundy color. Is this possible at all? Thanks, Michele

Dear Michele,
This is possible, and I think you can do it yourself. First, ready my article on Fabric Dyeing 101. Next, get a copy of the catalog from www.dharmatrading.com. Study carefully and amass all the supplies you need. If you want to try for black, you will need reactive dye Black 250 plus soda ash and salt. If you want to try burgundy, you could check out the industrial dyes, which are very, very simple to use but come in limited colors. Keep in mind dyeing is always (even in my case, believe me) an experiment. Also remember, you will be combining colors, so you will need to determine what will make burgundy out of the brown that you have there. If, after all that, you decide you don’t want to try it yourself, you can contact Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com and see what she says. have fun!
