Homestead Transfast Dye Sharing

    Have you ever bought one of these powdered dyes and then decided it wasn’t the right color you wanted or bought two bottles in order to make a custom color that didn’t work out quite right.  I have three dyes that I have used in trials but never in a finished product.  And each bottle of powder is probably a lifetime supply for me.

    At our meeting at Woodcraft on December 8 I noticed that Woodcraft sells 20 different Transfast dye colors (list price $12.50 each for one ounce).  I was thinking that if I find three EMGW members interested in sharing, then I would purchase one bottle of each color, a bunch of test tubes, paper funnels, and test tube labels and split each color bottle into fourths (1/4).  Total cost of the project would be approximately $280 or $70 per person. 

    If you want to see what the colors are, you can find them on the Rockler web site (Woodcraft doesn’t show them as far as I can tell).

    If you are interested in getting a set of 20 transfast dye colors with approximately ¼ ounce of each, let me know.

    Tom, As we discussed Saturday, I'd be interested in some, but not 20 dyes. Here's the site for the test tubes I bought:
