Tara Powder

$4.50 - $9.00
Tara Powder

This fine powder is made from ground tara pods, a Central American plant long used for it's high concentration of tannins. It is an excellent gallic "clear" tannin base for ecoprinting, meaning it will not impart color to the underlaying fabric. Turns a beautiful purple-grey with exposure to iron (as shown in photo).

25 grams of tara can prepare at least 300 g of fiber to be ecoprinted. Use at 10% wog, although lower and higher amounts can be used as well.

Dissolve with hot water in a small container before adding to a larger pot. It will be sticky! Just work with it until it's as dissolved as you can get it.
