How should I prepare my surfaces before dyeing with FolkArt Ultra Dye?
Preparation is unique for each surface. Keep reading to learn more.
- Wood – FolkArt Ultra Dye is best applied directly to the unfinished, raw wood. The only preparation to the unfinished wood, would be to sand any rough areas using a medium-to-fine grit sandpaper. Wipe with a tack cloth to remove sanding dust.
- Wicker, Hemp, Reed Baskets – These surfaces MUST be uncoated and non-sealed to properly accept FolkArt Ultra Dye. (NOTE: Be sure to test a small area to make sure the surface is free of any finishes.) Prepare these non-finished surfaces by wiping with a damp cloth to remove all dust particles.
- Fabric – FolkArt Ultra Dye can be used on natural fabrics for decorative purposes ONLY. Fabric items such as: pillows, curtains, hand woven cotton rugs or framed fabric artwork that will not be laundered can be used. Because FolkArt Ultra Dye is a water soluble dye, it may reactivate when fabrics become wet. It is not recommended for use on rugs or materials that come into regular contact with water.
