Dharma Fixative

I used the Dharma Fixative on the last batch of dying I did and I must say, I think I've stopped the bleeding...:) I let the dyed cane dry overnight before the Dharma Fixative treatment.

What I used:

  1. One gal. of hot water, the same amount used for dying;
  2. 2 oz of Dharma Fixative;
  3. Added the coil of dyed cane;
  4. I turned it after 10 minutes but if your water completely covers the coil you could just leave it in the Dharma Fixative for 20 minutes;
  5. Let it dry over night.

I have not had a problem with bleeding using either coil that I treated.
