Be sure to wait until the fabric has completely dried after washing, a slightly damp tulle, or a cotton T-shirt will quickly absorb all the coloring pigments into itself.

Important! The color intensity of a fabric product depends on how concentrated the dye is, as well as on time. Therefore, think about how striking the result you want to get before you dye the fabric with green.

Aniline dyes

If you have chosen this method of staining, in no case do not experiment. It is possible to paint the tulle in a different shade only by strictly following the instructions. The following options are possible:

  • Dye the dye in a small container until the dye is completely dissolved, and then pour it into the main volume of water, and then place the tulle.
  • Add the coloring matter immediately to the basin or to another container into which you have already poured warm water. Put the product you are painting in the resulting solution.

Important! Quite often, dye manufacturers advise salting water with sodium chloride to obtain a stable color. The proportions of salt, water, as well as dye must be indicated in the instructions.


Good old green

The fabric should be dyed with green paint for those housewives who want to see window curtains or t-shirts in a greenish tint. The method of application is extremely simple:

  1. Dissolve a small amount of green pharmacy liquid in warm water. Determine the required volume of the medical solution yourself, based on the desired brightness of the final shade. On average, about 5 ml of a diamond solution (1 bottle) is taken per 5 liters of water.
  2. Stir the entire contents of the container evenly.
  3. After that, put a damp cloth or a t-shirt there.
  4. Soak for 20-30 minutes.

Recommendations for dyeing clothes and tulle:

  1. The most important and main advice. Before proceeding to the direct dyeing of clothing, weigh the pros and cons. Amateur painting is always a risk.
  2. Know the composition of the fabric, because the whole result of painting depends on the composition of the canvas:
    • if the fabric is natural, for example: cotton, linen, jeans, then as a rule, the painting is excellent;
    • if the fabric is mixed, the color will come out a little paler, for example, it will be not blue, but light blue.
    • if the fabric is 100% synthetic, there is a very high risk that the fabric will not be dyed at all, because the synthetic fabric drains the paint from cellophane and the product remains exactly the same shade as before dyeing.

Important! Please note that, unfortunately, at the moment there are more frequent cases when the composition that is written on the label does not match the reality.

  1. Decide on the color. We recommend dyeing in colors that are slightly darker than the original shade of the fabric. For example, blue is best colored in blue or navy blue. Also do not forget to consider the initial shade of the thing. Ideal if it will be close colors.But if you paint white jeans in black, in the end you will get gray or dark gray, but not black at all.
  2. Only measure the final shade on a thoroughly dried colored item, because wet items are always darker.
  3. If color is very important to you, color the test piece of fabric, which will be the same in composition, dry and look at the result.
  4. If you don’t like the shade of the paint you have prepared, do not risk it. In industrial conditions, shades of paints are tested a large number of times, achieving the necessary color. At home, you have only 1 attempt.
  5. Paint only with gloves. Wear gloves before opening the paint bag if you decide not to use the options we proposed, but an industrial solution. In the case of working with medical solutions, also do not ignore the gloves, so as not to think about how to wipe the brilliant green or potassium permanganate from the skin.
  6. Paint things according to the instructions that are written on the packaging on the packaging when using industrial dyes.
