Genius!  Thanks so much!  I've been putting off ordering the Bubble Jet set and here I have all the ingredients for this (except the fabric) on hand.  I will definitely be trying this out.

Hi Zanney,

If you're in Australia, you can purchase alum from a chemist (they will have to order it in though and it's about $15 for 100g).  However, I have found some asian shops carry it.  In some cases, it's labelled 'Tawas Powder' - same thing.  It usually sells for about $1.20 for 100g - ALOT cheaper than chemists!!!

However, if you can't find it or don't want to ask at a chemist, it's available on ebay:  http://shop.ebay.com.au/i.html?LH_AvailTo=15&_nkw=alum+powder&_arm=1&_armm=63&_ruu=http://shop.ebay.com.au/i.html%3F_nkw%3Dalum%2Bpowder%26_arr%3D1%26_trksid%3Dm38&_trksid=m38&_rdc=1

just looking back at this post, and wondering if it would make any difference if you used washing soda powdered form
as opposed to crystal form.....
I used the powdered last time, I am going to buy the crystal form this time and give it a go again.

Yes - it should be washing soda, crystal form.  I haven't seen washing soda in powder form - do you mean washing powder (as in detergent)?  Anyway, the most crutial ingredient is Alum - it's used in dying wool to make the colour 'stick'.

You don't mix the solution before placing the fabric into the bowl?
Thank you,

Ooohhh thank you!!  I have tried some alternatives to just buying the fabric made for this.  None of them has worked like yours.  Can you or somebody tell me what soda ash is and where you can find it?  Is it the stuff for tye dye?


Yes it sure is and you can get it in small packages and in bulk from Dharma Trading company. My little brother uses this by the truckload for his tye dyes
