Dye Magic .... on wood !


After fabric, after rope, no it is not the wool but the wood I’ve tried ! Yes, wood is also a live and organic material and it absorbs the colours very well.

To dye these wooden beads I followed the same method that used for rope and fabric. I applied a coat of raw linseed oil to protect the wood.

I am still in the experimenting process about the dyeing and the quality of the beads. However, I couldn’t resist to make necklaces and I must say I am very happy with the result. I am already testing other colours. Maybe necklaces will be on sale this summer on Dragons Are Real...
