Aluminum Acetate

$8.00 - $15.00
Aluminum Acetate

Used for mordanting cellulose fibers such as cotton, linen, hemp, etc. Produces a clear mordant with no patina of a tannin, so it's excellent for bright colors as shown!

**This powder is very fine and should be used with care, including wearing a dust mask and gloves.**

Instructions:
Use 10% mordant to weight of goods. Dissolve in hot water (this may take a while, just be patient). Add to your dyeing vessel with the hottest water your tap will produce. (You can even use a plastic bucket.). Submerge the fabric for 1 hour, or until you can get back to it. Rinse before dyeing. No pre-bath of tannin necessary.

50 grams will dye approximately 1 lb of fabric (500g).
