Colorama Dyes are very strong acid dyes.To mix Colorama Dyes, you must use 1 1/4 cup of boiling water (distilled water is best), 1 Tbs white vinegar ( no vinegar allowed in # 69 Cleansing Orange, as vinegar is 'the' acid in the dye mix). Colorama Dyes are acid dyes(Dyes that set with the use of an acid such as vinegar or Setting Powder (ours is chemical grade), and although they are not toxic, they are not recommended food safe, and are for decorative use only! Colorama Dye is the first dye company to ever show you the actual dye on a chicken egg and a quail egg in the picture, there is no paper swatch guess work as to what color you will get, we are the trend setter here others are now copying my smart move. My dye colors are packed double , so there is no need for using two packs. Take the time and watch the video on my dye here  http://www.youtube.com/pysankyusa  My dyes have no fillers, they are 100% pure color, and will take in 15 seconds when used correctly. And, yes they will work with the other dye company. All Colorama Dyes will wash back using a soft brush and Ivory Dish Detergent(baby shampoo will work when you can't find Ivory), I use a hand soap pump bottle filled with one part Ivory to two parts water. Doing this gives me pure color each time, also I can inspect my pysanka and catch missed spaces, and do touch up work.If using drained/dried shells, the hole must be blocked, I suggest a Pysanky Plug. You may also block the hole using beeswax. Shell prep for "any' dyes: Duck eggs- WATER ONLY! Never use a cleaning agent or bleach on a duck shell, if the shell has some stains, work with them. Once you etch a duck egg shell you will only get pastel colors. Turkey, White/Brown Quail Eggs- All have spots, yes white have white spots A scrub with baking powder paste, then rinse and a quick dip in pure white vinegar. Commercial eggs, home laid eggs- Commercial eggs after they are washed they are rested in rubber rings, this is why you get ring marks when you dye. Also commercial eggs are now being sprayed with vegetable oil for a longer shelf life- To clean these eggs, make a paste of baking soda and scrub with your hands, I suggest the aid of a Magic Eraser sponge, Never use the green scrubbing squares, they put micro scratches on the shell. Once the egg is clean, rinse it and put it in a dip of white vinegar, pat dry.DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS TO DRY DYED SHELL, paper towels often have raised desighns or textured surfaces that will scratch wet dye. Use oil free tissues or toilet paper.If you don't like the look of a roll of toilet paper at your work station, cut the bottom out of a square pop up tissue box and feed the toilet paper up through the opening. Ostrich, and Rhea- These are tough shells to work with. Some artist use 'The Works' toilet bowl cleaner from the Dollar Tree store, it is a mild acid and will eat off the shiny layer allowing a dull surface that will take dye. Use caution when using this product. Work in a ventilated area and avoid stainless steel, as it will turn it black. If you prefer a safe mode pour 2 cups of white vinegar in a bowl then add 1 pack of Setting Powder, this will increase the acid level of the vinegar and will etch eggs faster. You want to take the shells down to a smooth working area. For these large shells.When ready to dye, I pour my dye in a double Zip-Lock bag, it works fantastic. To remove dye from your hands. Again turn to The Dollar Tree, their LA's Totally Awesome Orange All Purpose Degreaser will remove dye. It also removes spots from clothes. and remember when having trouble with a shell, sometime it is just the egg. My dye products along with the help products that I list, do not cause adverse health problems when directions are followed , and the product is used correctly. As always due to the strength of the color,or cleaning products, children should be supervised when using these products.
