SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: ,


Aquarelle Cutch Liquid is an easy to use liquid natural dye that creates a soft brown. Cutch (Acacia catechu) is the rich reddish brown color seen in Indian textiles. It is both a dyestuff and tanning agent and has been used in India since ancient times. Cutch has a very sweet aroma and takes a long simmer to yield rich brown.  Alum mordants tend to turn Cutch yellow. So if you are seeking a deep chocolate shade, mordant with iron. After that, dye with 20-30% cutch on the wof (weight of fiber) for a beautiful shade.

Each Aquarelle liquid natural dye is pre-extracted from a leaf, root, bark or other natural source. They combine easily and produce beautiful shades. Thicken with Print Paste Thickener. After that, use for printing, painting and other surface design applications.
