TUESDAYS TIPS. TECHNIQUES AND TUTORIALS - RECOLOURING/DYING BAKERS TWINE

Welcome to this weeks edition of Tuesday's Tips, Techniques and Tutorials.
This week I thought I would share some information on how to die bakers twine. Stampin' Up! Bakers Twine is an affordable way to add embellishments to your projects, however sometimes you just don't have the right colour for what you want. So here is a little how to guide. You will need Stampin' Up! Bakers Twine in white, Item # 124262, some rubbing alcohol/isocol which you can purchase at any supermarket and a Stampin' Up! re-inker of your choice.

Dyeing Instructions:

To dye your Baker's Twine, simply create a mixture using rubbing alcohol/isocol and any color of our Classic Ink refills. A good starting ratio is one tablespoon of alcohol to one drop of ink refill (you can adjust from there to get the right color intensity for your project). Place the Baker's Twine in the mixture allowing enough time for the dye to fully soak the twine. Lay the dyed twine on a clean paper towel to dry.

Now just make sure you wear gloves when doing this or you will end up with inky fingers. Also make sure you put your paper towel on something non-porous ie dinner plate for the twine to dry one. You don't want to be colouring your white stone benchtop with Pistachio Pudding Ink - don't ask me how I know this. It only takes a little while to dry and you can speed up drying time with a heat gun.
Hope you like this weeks tutorial. Karlie :)
