Experimenting with Color

The Jacquard company produces several lines of fabric dyes, among them a large number of acid dyes.  These are available through many retailers, among them the Dharma Trading Company (from which I bought several of the colors below).  The color chart is taken from the websites of Jacquard and Dharma.

Keep in mind that the colors below reflect what can be expected when dyeing textiles.  The colors they will dye a pysanka may be different, and are affected by the colors of the underlying (previous) dyes on the shell.

To prepare the Jacquard dyes for pysankarstvo, measure out about half a teaspoon of the powdered dye, and add about 1 to 1.5 cups of boiling water to it.  Mix well, and then add 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar.
