Remove or fade colours with discharge paste and replace with a new colour in one step. Dischargeable Acid Dyes and Illuminating Acid Dyes increase the range of patterning and effects available to the artist. The dyes work like this; the dischargeable acid dyes have a low resistance to bleaching and are easily removed from fabric with a discharge paste while the illuminating dyes have a high resistance to bleaching.
Fabrics can be painted or dyed with the dischargeable dyes which are readily removed with discharge paste and illuminating dye can be combined with the discharge paste to replace the original colour. You can learn more about how to print with discharge dyes from our Blog post.
