Dyeing Worbla’s Pearly Art, TranspArt, Crystal Art and Deco Art with Rit Dyes

Worbla was at USITT a few months ago and spoke with RIT about their Polyester DyeMore line and their new Proline series. We’d discussed how these dyes might work on Worbla products – and Rit set us up with dye to test ourselves. This ended up being a pretty in-depth test over a few weeks,…

Read on for these two methods!
