Rope Mouldings - Techniques for Dyeing

Rope mouldings have been around for a long time. When the rope was first discovered it was used to create clothes for soldiers, fishermen and servants. The rope was a much easier material to work with and it could be formed into any shape imaginable. In fact, some rope mouldings are still handmade today in countries such as Burma and Nepal. One of the advantages of Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods is that they can be formed into any shape, including square and circular.

A popular application of rope mouldings is making rope ladders. These have many practical applications, including being used to provide support while carrying loads over obstacles or up sheer cliff walls. Other uses include rope mouldings being used as balustrade systems, on walls to give extra strength to walls or even to support a staircase. Because they are formed into round shapes, rope mouldings are suitable for all sorts of applications.

If you have ever used Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods to make something, then you will know that the possibilities are endless. Rope mouldings can be made from a variety of different materials. Some of the most commonly used rope mouldings are wood, rope and mesh. Each of these materials have their own properties and benefits, which means that it is possible to find rope mouldings to suit almost any application. However, it is not always easy to determine the right rope moulding for the job, and it may sometimes be necessary to experiment with both rope and wood to get the best result.

If you are having problems getting the rope mouldings to fit exactly to your needs, then you can help yourself by using a fabric dye. All you need to do is to take a piece of white fabric and dampen it slightly. Then lay the fabric on the rope mouldings and make sure the surface you are working on is level. The dye will easily stick to the surface if it is applied evenly. Know more about flooring at

Next you should work quickly as you only have a limited amount of time to dye the rope mouldings. Once the material has been saturated with the dye, it is time to pull the fabric dye from the moulds and onto the desired surface. Once the dye has been pulled from the fabric, it is time to put the fabric in the washer. Make sure that the fabric is thoroughly dry before you start to knot it up. Knotting is essential as the last thing you want is to pull a thread out of the moulding and have a hole in the fabric.

If you are having trouble finding a dye that you like, then try looking at online retail stores. Many of these stores will carry a wide range of different types of dyed rope mouldings. They may also carry pieces of fabric that are already dyed so you do not even need to dye the pieces yourself. These retail stores are often found on the web and will allow you to shop at your own convenience and to compare different brands and styles of rope mouldings before making your decision. Just keep in mind that it is a good idea to ask questions when working with this type of material.
