Paduak wood chips are a direct result of our woodworking and are collected during processing.
The reddish color can be extracted from the chips with alcohol. Both isopropanol and ethanol work well. Soak the wood chips overnight in the alcohol, then filter the dye liquid. Dilute the alcohol with water and gently heat with your mordanted fiber. Remember you are heating alcohol with will boil at a lower temperature than water and is flammable. Heating outdoors, or in a water bath is safest. The red color is not especially light fast.
Sold in 4 ounce bags.
