Q.
How can I dye cultured freshwater pearls?

A.
Dyeing your own cultured freshwater pearls is a fun way to get the exact color you need for a project. Follow these easy step-by-step instructions to dye your own pearls using single-step fabric dye or artisan fabric-reactive dye. Dyed pearls will not maintain their color forever, so if you'd like to reduce the chance of fading, give them a coat of an artists' fixative, such as Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ top coat after dyeing.
