Jacquard Acid Dyes for Millinery using the metric system

In this video I am going through the process of using powdered Jacquard Acid Dyes in a millinery context. This includes colour mixing using only 3 colours (CMY). I am also demonstrating the dyeing process with silk organza and a bleached parasisal straw, as well as talking about all the other materials that can be dyed in this way. Sorry for all the maths!
