Avocado dye tutorial
This was my first try at making a natural dye and it was super easy. Really.
Buy some avocados
Clean the skins and stones and remove as much flesh as possible. The riper the avo the easier this is. If they are super hard it just won't come off.
I was a little skeptical about this process when I started, but as you can see from this stone I sliced, there's definitely some red in there!
My finished skins.
Get a big pan, fill it with warm water, and turn on the gas. I put mine on a low heat and planned to leave it on for 40-60 minutes. No point in rushing.
Put in your skins and stones.
After 10 minutes
After 30 minutes - Looking more orange than pink at this stage but I am happy with the intensity.
White cotton sports socks ready to go in
I left the socks in for about 40 mins then left them out to dry, that's it.
