A concentrated water soluble painting dye

FAS waters soluble powder dyeFAS Powder Dye is a highly versatile product that may be used as drawing ink, a colour wash, and a non-permanent fabric dye or mixed with cellulose paint to make a medium.  

Formulated specifically for school use and offers a brilliant range of colours which can be used for many creative art projects. Once dry the dye remains water-soluble.

The dye is an extremely versatile art product, which can be used to enhance your classroom displays over all curriculum areas. It can be used successfully with a range of other art products but is particularly successful over crayon and pastel making backgrounds colourful and bright.

It can be managed in the same way as paint using thick and thin brushes with one brush per jar or alternatively a brush per child that can be wiped before using a new colour. This will avoid brushes ending up in one jar and spoiling of colours.

Where dyes are being used in small areas and colours are not to be blended a small amount of each dye can be placed in a paint palette and a cotton bud used to apply the dye.  Available in single 30g pots in a bright selection of colours.
