Easy-to-use cold water dyes are fibre-reactive which means the colour bonds permanently to cellulose and natural fibers. Procion MX is the undisputed king of tie dye. It is also one of the most versatile dyes available. Mix the concentrated dye powder with warm tap water to create the most vivid and colourfast of dyes for fashion, craft and fine art. With Jacquard’s assortment, you can create an infinite palette of colors, ranging from light pastels to deep, vibrant hues. Techniques include: tie dye, immersion dyeing, batik, screen printing, direct application, gradation dyeing, sprinkle dyeing, ice dyeing and more!
Colour Mixing: Typically, one 2/3 oz (19 g) bottle will dye more than 1 lb (45 kg) of dry fabric. (Very bright colors will require more dye and pastel colors will require less.)
