Aquarelle Myrobalan Liquid
Aquarelle Myrobalan Liquid is an easy to use liquid natural dye that creates a soft butter yellow color. People commonly use Myrobalan (Terminalia chebula) as a dye throughout India. In addition, it grows primarily in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is an upright tree with small oval leaves and lovely bright yellow flowers. The pods are the source of the color. Myrobalan has always been used as a primary component for cotton dyeing in India. People often employ it as a mordant prior to creating brown and black on cotton fabrics, using iron.
Each Aquarelle liquid natural dye is pre-extracted from a leaf, root, bark or other natural source. In addition, they combine easily and produce beautiful shades. Thicken with Print Paste Thickener. After that, use for printing, painting and other surface design applications.
