Padauk is a wood that grows on islands in the Bay of Bengal east of India. Some call it vermilion because of its bright orange color when cut. I make vases out of it on my wood turning lathe and the chips I generate in the process are too beautiful to toss in the trash. I found out that they can be used to make a dye if soaked in alcohol. I tried it and it worked, more or less. I painted a piece of paper with it and also tried to stain a maple vase. It seems to work but the alcohol dried out the wood and caused it to crack. I think I’ll leave it to people like you that know what you’re doing!
The pictures show a sheet of white paper I attempted to stain with this dye along with Crayola crayons as a color reference. The last pic is of a light shining through a small jar containing about 1" of dye (alcohol and padauk chips).
The quantity I ship to you is one cup which is about 14-1/2 cubic inches. It weighs about 1.7 ounces (45 grams). I don't know how much dye that would make but it bet it would be more than half a gallon. I ship it to you in a sealed bag inside a 9-1/2" x 12-1/2" shipping envelope.
