This is a vital step! Add the wet hemp to your food coloring mixture and let sit for 10 minutes, while mixing the liquid every now and then. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 200 Answers 0 Best Answers 416 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-06-12T12:13:23-04:00Added an answer on June 12, 2020 at 12:13 pm If you’re talking about hemp string/fiber–soak it in hot water until it’s saturated–leave it for a while, if you’d like. Mix 2/3C hot water with 2TBS of white vinegar. Add your food coloring… at least 30 drops. Let the fiber soak until you get it colored to your desired shade (bear in mind that it will be darker while wet), stirring the mixture occasionally. When you reach your desired color, remove it from the food coloring solution, and dry it overnight on paper towels. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 115 Answers 0 Best Answers 247 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-06-11T01:29:25-04:00Added an answer on June 11, 2020 at 1:29 am It’s a pretty simple process but you’ll want to be sure of a few key steps along the way: 1. Combine vinegar and water into a mixture, about 3/4ths hot water a couple tablespoons of white vinegar. 2. Fill this mixture with a moderate amount of food coloring. 15-25 drops will do. 3. Soak your hemp is hot water to prepare it. 4. Let the hemp sit in your food coloring mixture for at least 10 minutes or until the dye has saturated the hemp generously. Darker dye will work better usually! 5. Remove the hemp from your mixture and run under hot water and THEN cold water. Let the hemp sit out and dry overnight! 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 205 Answers 0 Best Answers 432 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-06-11T09:30:00-04:00Added an answer on June 11, 2020 at 9:30 am This is similar to other textile dye procedures but requires some special fiber-reactive dye so that the coloring can soak into the material. You will first separate the twine by stretching it out, a process done through making a hank. Then, soak it in a solution with hot water and a textile cleaning product so that the twine can be cleaned before dye is added. Next, mix 1tbsp of the dye with 2 cups of warm water and stirring until the dye dissolves. Let the hemp twine then soak in this solution for 10-15mins and afterwards place in a solution of baking soda and warm water before adding back into the dye solution for a few more minutes. To finish the dye process, gently squeeze the hemp twine to remove the solution and let soak in warm water and then let dry. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
