natural dyes for handpainting?
i see dharma trading is selling natural dyes now. i was wondering, though, their instructions seem to be for immersion method and i am more interested in handpainting. is it possible to use the natural dyes to make a dye liquor to use for hand painting or are they better suited by immersion? I realize the mortar and such will still be necessary, but aside from that. It says the dye needs to be simmered for an hour, but could I just make a concentrated batch and simmer that for an hour instead of setting up an immersion pot or something?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
