Natural fibers—such as cotton, linen, silk, and wool—take dye much better than synthetics do. Dyeing is as much an art as a science, so don't hesitate to experiment. For example, we like combining liquid dyes to come up with our own colors. Modify this technique for items other than fabric, immersing them in the dye and taking note of how each item takes the color.
