I don't remember that particular conversation but I didn't respond
because I had several links for this and then when I checked before
posting they were gone. Perhaps this is why they were taken off.
Maybe it's not something we are suppose to see. I have links for
other art forms but not this now. i also know someone posted some
links and perhaps they will be the old link but I haven't had time
to look. I know on some native sites you cannot access/forbidden-
I'm not sure the reason. Anyway I have seen kits available and also
I've seen where you can buy the dye around town.It's not something I
really want to do but at least I know it's available.
