Vernet is well-known for their thumbtips, and they also make this excellent dye tube. This is a very useful accessory for the color changing siiks routine, but it can also be used for the vanish or appearance of silks. The unique shape makes it easy to work, and helps with the load capacity. Can be used with 12 15 or 18" silks, depending on the weight of the silk. Also, diamond cut silks work especially well. Gimmick only--supply your own silks.
