Dyeing Feet

Post Number:#1  Unread postby wamplercathy » Sun Mar 26, 2017 2:00 pm


Howdy yall. I have been a very busy girl lately. LOL. Been working my day job, now a night job. Finally got a tiny promotion. :P Been keeping our rabbitry afloat, and getting geared up for the Spring swap meet. :runaround: I finally got around to drying my first set of feet, tails, and ears a few days ago and are getting ready to make them into charms. I was wondering how to dye some of them? Maybe blue, red, or green. :shrug: :lol: Should that have been done prior to drying or can it be done now? :?

Here's a couple pictures. LOL:

I thought I responded to this but I guess I didn't.

I've only used white feet for dyeing and I used Ritz fabric dye that I found at Walmart. I put a teaspoon of dye (adjust as needed) with a bit of vinegar in a pint mason jar and add the feet. I generally let them soak for about an hr. You can dye them after they are dry, you just have to be sure to them again thoroughly after dyeing. I use my dehydrator.
