Dupont dyes are concentrated, water-based dyes which must be steam-set. The French dyes were developed more than 100 years ago and are used by fiber artists for painting on silks and wool fabrics around the world. The colors are intense and vibrant, and the dyes can be diluted to achieve a range of shades. The colors can also be blended together to create new hues. The dyes are versatile and are effective with a variety of application techniques, including salt, alcohol, gutta serti, direct painting with thickened dyes or on silk treated with anti-fusant and screening using HPNO.
