Procion MX fibre-reactive cold water dyes are the best dyes available for all cellulose fibres (Plant fibres) including cotton, rayon, linen, hemp, flax, paper, reeds and wood. They are used for tie dye, vat dyeing, graduation dyeing, printing, sponging, hand painting, shibori, wax batik, splatter painting and more. The colours are very concentrated and are all intermixable so you can easily create your own range of colours.
Procion dyes require Soda Ash to fix the colour on to the fabric. 25g will produce approximately 2 litres of dye (for black we recommend doubling this weight of dye to acheive the best results)
Please be aware that Procion will not work at all on synthetics such as polyester and will only dye protein fibres such as wool and silk to very pale shades. Our dyes come with good instructions and you will find a lot of information on the internet about alternative methods with procion dyes. They are very versatile and there are many ways they can be used. You will need household salt and a fixative (Soda ash).
You do need to be aware that the colours of the dyes as represented in our ebay shop can only be an approximation. As with all dyes the colour achieved is dependant on the colour you are dyeing on top of and the type of fabric you are dyeing. I would also strongly recommend that if you are new to dyeing it may be best to have a trial dye session before dyeing anything valuable and it is important to be aware that when dyeing pre-manufactured clothing there is always a slight risk because you can never be sure what chemicals the manufacturer has used to coat the fabrics and how this will effect dye absorption.
To start with we recommend you purchase: Lemon Yellow, Magenta & Turquoise. These three colours will give you a vast array of brights
