When I heard that Rit Dye launched a new product called Rit DyeMore that would dye synthetic materials I just had to try it out!  It’s every bit as cool as I had hoped, you can actually dye many plastics and other synthetic materials now!  The results are bright and fun.  There are so many new possibilities.  I have a feeling my craft projects are going to be a little bit more colorful from now on!
