Orca Black Tip: Canada's environmental laws don't allow Acid Black 1 powder dye (used in most USA pysanka dyes) to be used in our Canadian dye because it makes it's way into our streams and waterways. Because of this, our Orca Black has a mixture of different black dyes that are easier on the environment.

This means that Orca Black needs a little help to cover strong and powerful.  It either needs patience with a 20-25 minute dip, or... my preferred technique, which is to wash back all previous colours and then dip in 10% vinegar or do a quick etch with ZEP toilet bowl cleaner or Safe Etch before going into Orca Black. This will take less than a 5 minute dip with a solid glorious coverage. 

Black Represents: darkest time before dawn, eternity, respect for the dead and fear or ignorance.
