After Bandhej for Colour is done it goes for colour. It is not necessary that every piece of design have Bandhej for Colour. Some might have only design Bandhej. This kind of cloth directly goes for colour. Again the person who has designed it decides colours. In olden days the colours used were natural colours but now a days they use artificial colours.
For making this colour they use below listed materials. This combination can colour around 40 pieces of cloth:
Colour - 350 gm
Alum - 350 gm.
Sodium- 175 gm
Powder - 50 gm
Sulphate Sodium - 50 gm
Water - until it mixture become paste
Acid - 150 gm
Once the colour is made then they dip cloths into it for around 1 -1.5 minutes per cloth. Then it goes for drying. This process is used when base colour is light and the colour, which will now be added, is dark. If it is other way round they have to do another process, which is called ‘wet colouring’. In that materials are same but it is done on the stove. After colour it goes for Drying or for removing Bandhej.
