Description

You can remove these acid dyes from fabric easily by using discharge paste. When you mix discharge paste with Illuminating Acid Dyes, it creates a unique and versatile method for discharge printing on fabric.

The amount of dye you use depends on how dark you want the colour. You measure it based on the weight of the material you’re dyeing. If you start with a 1% dye solution, using a 2:1 ratio (50cc of 1% dye solution for every 25g of fibre) will give you an average colour depth. But this is just a starting point for your experiments. To make the colour deeper, you’ll need more dye, and for lighter colours, you can use less. To set these dyes, you can use vinegar or citric acid, this is where they get their name, the dyes themselves are not acidic.
