Instructions for using Veniard Fly Tying Dye:- 

  • First clean the feathers by soaking in any good detergent (Venpol for preference), or a quality soap powder for a few minutes. Note: Waterfowl feathers must be soaked for considerably longer to allow penetration of the natural oil coating.
  • Rinse in cold water.
  • Dissolve approx. a quarter of a teaspoon of dye in approx. a litre of boiling water, and stir well until completely dissolved, then add one table spoon of Acetic (if available) or vinegar to fix the colour. Black & all other dark shades should have a much stronger dye bath with more acid or vinegar.
  • Put in the feathers to be dyed and return to simmer keeping the plumes moving all the time.
  • Most dyes are a mixture of three colours, so it is essential to allow time for all the colours to penetrate to obtain the correct / desired shade.
  • They do not fix at the same rate so withdrawing feathers too soon could result in the wrong shade. You can get a good idea of final shade by watching the quill or by holding a single feather up to the light. Remember that the feather will look a lot darker when wet.
  • Remove all feathers from the dye bath and rinse well in cold water.
  • Press the feathers between cloth or paper to remove most of the moisture. Allow to dry naturally.
  • To bring hackles back to their natural brilliance they should be partially dried and then placed in a cardboard lid, blown dry with a hair dryer, and shaken gently until dry.
  • Please note these Veniard Dye instructions also apply to furs & wools. Etc. 
  • If valuable / rare materials are to be used we advise testing a small quantity first.
