Picky Chic Dyes - dye creations for the 'picky chick'




I am what is considered a dye hobbyist
...so here I am in all my hobby glory


Accepting custom slots for:
solid dye jobs on
cotton/linen/hemp and silks
&
1 hand-applied custom creation
Cost and descriptions below







Service Descriptions and Costs:


Solid dye job on cotton/linen/hemp-$45*

Hand dyed in a tub with Dharma Procion Dyes and set with soda ash.

Single acid dye on Silk-$60*
Hand dyed over heat with Dharma Acid Dyes and set with citric acid.
Please be aware that acid dye colors can greatly vary from listed swatch
to color on your weave, no matter how perfect the setting and application,
this best described as a goal with a surprise ending


Single and multiple color graduations

to be added soon. Teffer has first slot


Custom Creation, hand applied dye-$150 and up
Hand applied Dharma Procion Dyes to specific designs in your wrap.
Base cost and will vary depending upon complexity of design,
how many colors you choose and the amount of space/design there will be to cover.
This is a process I apply to both sides of the wrap,
but upon request I can cut some cost for single side application,
but be aware that it
will not be even, on the 'wrong side' of your wrap

Stripping of dye-$30*
This is a process in which I use thiourea dioxide to remove color
I prefer to strip natural wraps, but if you have a dyed wrap you
would like stripped please note results are variable and that color chart below can give you
some indication of how much may process out
Color Discharge Chart
keep in mind stains may not be removed with this process and stains that were previously
unnoticeable may become very obvious after stripping, not all colors will be removable.






Fine Print:

Art is at work:
Dyeing is truly an art-form and even when applied with the
same variables in place each time, there may be some small variations that occur.

All sales are final so please
remember this and ask any questions
you may have, before sending your wrap.
I put my heart into dyeing and I will give your
wrap my love and attention during it's transformation.


Wrap will undergo a hot synthrolpol pre-wash, but I do request

that you wash it before sending, with an additive free detergent.

All wraps undergo several hot washes during
the dyeing process ,so please be aware that your wrap may lose some length
and/or width and that this varies with each individual job.


All costs are for my time and materials, you will also be required to cover shipping both ways,
and upon returning I do heavily suggest covering the cost of insurance as well
Wraps will be in a smoke free, black lab friendly home during their visit


*cost of all jobs are quoted for any length up to 4.9m
for longer wraps please add $5 for cotton/linen/hemp dye
and $10 for stripping. At this time I cannot accommodate
silk slots for wraps longer than 4.9m
.

Hi!!

I have a wrap that I'm looking to have stripped and dyed. If you are still doing this for us mommas I'm definitely interested! If you would like to see the wrap I'm speaking of I have it listed in the FSOT, but simply you can click on my profile & see it in the threads I started.. I'm a bit worried if the print will stand up to being striped.. Please let me know what we can do!

Hi! I have a Tussah Silk Nino that I need stripped and dyed, if you still do that. I googled dyeing woven and came across your post. Please email me @ Bekida91@gmail.com! Thanks!

Re: open slots, woven wrap dyeing---Picky Chic Dyes - dye creations for the 'picky ch

Do you have dye slots available still? I have a tussah fish sz 2 that someone did mean things to. I would like it stripped, and I kind of want to see where that leaves it before I decide that I want to leave it natural or overdue it because it's ugly! Can you help?
