Aquarelle Pomegranate Liquid



Liquid Pomegranate is an easy to use liquid natural dye. It creates a bronze yellow or a beautiful olive green shade with iron. For detailed instructions, please visit our page on how to use liquid dyes.

Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is known as anaar in India and granado in Spain. It grows wild in India, Italy, North Africa and China. People use pomegranate in India as both a tannin-rich mordant and as a dye.

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

Liquid Dye Color Combinations

  • Liquid Pomegranate and Saxon Blue will make an aqua and a light teal
  • Liquid Pomegranate and myrobalan used together create a rich yellow reminiscent of Indian textiles.

From our Feedback Friday series:

I am trying to achieve aqua blue/light teal with a combination of liquid pomegranate & Saxon blue. Results on mordanted silk habotai using ratio for light shades listed on your site were a “fern green.” Please advise as to the correct method/ratio to achieve aqua or light teal.

Saxon Blue is very yellow-based and when used by itself yields an aqua/turquoise shade. When you combine with another color like pomegranate, the yellow tint of the dye influences the combination and this turns it green. You were very close: next time, try less pomegranate or more Saxon Blue to achieve a teal shade.
 Although we provide guideline recipes for each color, your results may vary due to water, fiber and any variation in the dye itself from seasonal harvests.
