Dye for Capoeira Cords
A tube allows to dye 2 or 3 adult cords or 5/6 child cords.
1- Use a tube of TUPY® dye / dye (45g) for 300g of dry fabric.
2- Prepare the COLORING SOLUTION by dissolving the contents of the tube in 1 to 2 liters of boiling water.
3- Pour the COLORING SOLUTION into a container containing enough boiling water to cover the fabric, about 6 liters for 300g of fabric. Mix well.
4- Wash the fabric and, still wet, immerse it in the dye bath, leaving it to boil for 30 to 40 minutes, always stirring with a stick.
5- After the dyeing time, rinse the fabric removing the excess dye and let it dry in the shade. For better fixation, use TUPYFIX® or add 50g of cooking salt at the same time as the dye.
ATTENTION: For the capoeira ropes, be sure to respect the process and dry your ropes well before the baptisms to avoid any discoloration on the white abada!!
