needed certain colors of (faux) fun fur for tying and no one has custom colors, so i found a way to get some color. These are the new colors I came up with. There's a few more I am working on too..

Yeah you can use kool aid it gives it a paler color though. Rit die works well.

Kool aid does not come out paler...its a strong dye on natural fibers. craft fur is a polyester and will not take regular dyes, so i had to experiment to get these to work its a chemical dye. rit does some but is very washed out looking when done.

Unless you're unnatural, which explains Sandy.

You can also use onion skins to dye materials. That process is very "old skool" and limited to darker natural colors (no oranges, chartrueses, or blues) but the dyed skins/furs really become colorfast. I believe Ray Bergman had some type of recipe listed in his book "Trout".

For natural (feathers, fur, etc.) kool aid works great

Hey, sometimes you have onions in your pantry... sometimes you have RIT/kool aid. I had onions. When in Rome?

However, you're on your own.
