I have a blue baseball hat that has a logo on the front stitched in white. I would like to dye the hat tan. Can this be accomplished and if so what color dye should I buy and what will happen to the logo?

- Asked by Diane swanson on 21-Nov-13
Answer

In order to change blue to tan, you would have to bleach out all color and begin with white. If the threaded logo is cotton, it will dye to the same color as the cap material, if it is nylon, it would be a different shade of tan.

I have a 100% rayon white scarf. I need it to be a pale baby blue. Any suggestions?

- Asked by Missi on 01-Aug-13
Answer

These are the most professional fabric dyes that we carry. The Robin's egg blue looks like baby blue to me, or you could choose a cobalt and a white and mix them to create a pale blue. With Procion, you need to also purchase all the additives.

I have a white bikini that has turned yellow due to either the chlorine and / or tanning oil w/ bronzer. Will this dye the nylon bikini enough to cover up the yellow stains?

- Asked by Melissa on 18-May-13
Answer

The Procion MX Fiber Reactive Dye does not work on nylon or any other synthetic fibers. We would suggest using the Jacquard Acid Dyes are they dye most nylons.

- Answered by MisterArt on 22-May-13

About how many shirts does the 8 oz. size dye?

- Asked by Nydia on 29-Apr-13
Answer

It depends on the size of the shirt, but 8 oz is equivalent to 16 tbsp. You can dye approximately three t-shirts with one tbsp of dye. At this rate an 8 oz. jar would allow you to dye up to 48 t-shirts.

- Answered by MisterArt on 01-May-13

Will these dyes color super-stretch?

- Asked by Louise on 03-Mar-13
Answer

The fiber reactive dyes only work on natural fibers. They will not dye synthetics.

- Answered by MisterArt on 07-Mar-13

I would like to dye a viscose sheath dress to black. I would like to use cold water. What other products do I need and for what reason?

- Asked by Mary on 18-Feb-13
Answer

You'll need the following products: The Soda Ash Dye Fixer promotes the chemical reaction of the dye. The Urea keeps the fiber damp longer allowing a greater reaction time for the dye. The Sodium Alginate is used to thicken the dye to a paste consistency. This is for printing and hand painting. The Synthrapol is a mild soap specifically made for removing excess dye so that the dyed articles can be washed with other laundry. Here is a link with detailed instruction for this product: http://www.jacquardproducts.com/assets/jacquard-site/product-pages/dyes/procion-mx/Procion%20MX%20Instructions.pdf

- Answered by MisterArt on 21-Feb-13

I am looking for a dark gray not a black. Could you tell me how dark the warm black is?

- Asked by Jo Carroll on 15-Jan-13
Answer

The dye color swatches are a general guide. The actual dye colors will vary.

- Answered by MisterArt on 16-Jan-13

I want to dye a curtain panel that is 100% cotton. Any suggestion on how to do this and if this product will do the trick? I do not want it to shrink so therefore do not want to use regular dye in hot water.

- Asked by Judi on 03-Dec-12
Answer

The Procion MX Fiber Reactive Dye by Jacquard does not require hot water. You can add regular tap water.

I have used other Procion MX dyes and Jaquard's are absolutely the best. The colors are spectacular. I am an Art Quilter and use my own hand-dyed fabric almost exclusively in my quilts. I love this product because it dissolves better than other dyes, is a cold water dye and comes in so many colors. It doesn't bleed after I have done my "undyeing" steps, first by hand and then in the washing machine. If you are using another dye because it seems cheaper in price, compare a fabric dyed with the cheaper dye and the same fabric dyed with Jaquard's. I'll bet you will switch to Jaquard's. Also, you don't need as much to make a lot of dye, so it really isn't more expensive in the long run. MisterAet.com has the best prices, and the most selection of these dyes, and they always deliver promptly. I have decided to become a VIP member so I can save even more money!

This is my first time using this item. I am enjoying learning to use this product.

Once I decided I wanted to tie dye I found the MisterArt.com site and got absolutely everything I needed. The dyes are great and I would recommend them to anyone.
Rated by: robert f. in boston, MA
I purchased about 12 different colors and soda ash after learning that Procion MX was THE best for dying cotton. My extended family then spent a whole long weekend outdoors taking turns tie dying t-shirts, sheets, and other even some underwear. Everyone had fun being creative and admiring each other's masterpieces. MisterArt made the purchase and delivery easy and affordable.
Rated by: zabrina d. in cottonwood, CA
I love these dyes! They work really well and the colors are very beautiful!
Rated by: Nichole J. in Johnstown, PA
Jacquard Fiber Reactive dyes are by far the easiest to use and also very easy to clean up. They're also one of the least expensive among fiber reactive dyes. I make about 20 tie-dyed tshirts per week and I wouldn't think of using any other kind of dye!
Rated by: Kay T. in Beloit, WI
My daughter and I dyed onesies and burp clothes for a festival and they were fabulous.
Rated by: Mary R. in Columbus, MS
I used this dye to tie dye t-shirts for my grandchildren and my Sunday School Class. The colors are wonderful and stay bright after washing, and it is much more economical than buying a kit. I love the color selection, too--all the girls especially love the Bubblegum pink.
Rated by: Corri H. in Portland, OR
This is great dye! Works great in a large bin of water or small bottles. The color is wonderful, holds well, and items come out wonderful. Highly recommended!
Rated by: Zach J. in Greeley, CO
The Procion MX Dyes are awesome. I've dyed curtains, towels, shirts, and baby clothes the colors are very eye catching. Just make sure you get plenty of yellow it goes fast.
Rated by: Jenn M. in Havre, MT
The color is wonderful and vibrant. Compliments other colors well when tie dye-ing!
Rated by: Sarah W. in Woodstock, IL
Fantastic colors. We tie dye t-shirts for a volleyball memorial tournament. Found these, after Rainbow Rock discontinued. Couldn't figure how much to buy though, as they do not tell you, how much 2/3 oz (jar) translates into, except 1 tbsp does 1 lb fabric. Approx. 8 tsp in a jar and makes 4 cups of dye. 2 tsp per cup. Urea was 1 tbsp per cup.

We wanted to tie-dye table cloths for our 1972 highschool class reunion, so I ordered all the dye from Misterart. We ordered 1 bottle each of 6 different colors along with Jacquard Urea (to make liquid wet longer) and Jacquard Synthapol (to wash out remaining dye). We used "Better than Linen" paper wedding cloths (both round and rectangular). We tied the cloths dry using plastic zip ties and then soaked in soda ash solution for 5 minutes. We mixed 1 teaspoon of dye, 1 tablespoon of urea and 8 oz water in plastic hair dye bottles with nozzle dispensers. We applied the different colors of dye making a rainbow effect (yellow at top, then orange, then magenta, then green, then ice blue, then purple. The next day we cut the zip ties and carefully unfolded the still damp cloths and actually laundered on the gentle cycle (two at a time) with the Synapol and dried in dryer. After starching and ironing, they came out beautifully with bright brilliant colors! We dyed a total of 12 82" round and 3 7 foot rectangular cloths along with 4 t-shirts and still have enough dye left to color several more shirts or cloths. I couldn't be happier with these products! The colors are so bright and brilliant. The distributor of the PAPER tablecloths simply could not believe the pictures or that we were able to dye and launder their paper products. Thanks so much for helping make our "Remember the 70's Reunion" a tremendous success!

It has been years since I made batiks, but I wanted to go back to it, so I ordered some of the dyes and fixatives. The colors are vibrant and beautiful. I recommend latex gloves. My fingertips were colorful for days!

Perfect, the best dye that I have used so far. I highly recommend this product!!

Excellent products. Easy to use and great colors in finished fabric.
Rated by: Xavier L. in Sweet Home, OR
These dyes for strong long-lasting colors gave me very vivid colors and I was able to attain the effects I desired. Remember to use soda ash on the fabric before using the dyes.
Rated by: Amanda H. in germany, AE
Very easy to mix, beautiful results. I am still within the first few washes, but so far there has been zero fading. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Another jacquard product available through this site. Follow all directions found on this site for tye dying. IE: soda ash pre soak.
Rated by: Margaret J. in Tampa, FL
I used this product to change the accent color on a wool area rug that I purchased on line. The colors weren't quite right and I did not want to return the rug (shipping costs, hassle...). I used the emerald green to change a light pink area to a medium green and I used the medium blue to change a lilac area to blue. WOW - for just a few dollars and 30 minutes of work I have a perfectly color coordinated wool area rug. Thanks!!

great product great colors- we even mixed our own
Rated by: April P. in Kenmore, WA
My first dyeing experience has been using Procion MX. I apply it directly to yarn for hand-painted yarn effects. It has been a great introduction to dyeing. Procion MX is easy to use. Additionally, the company that produces the dye, Jacquard, is very supportive of questions regarding their products. I see no reason to use any other brand of dye.
Rated by: Thanh P. in Cleveland, OH
That's great product. I'll come back to Misterart again if I need this kind of dye again.
Rated by: Julia S. in Miami Beach, FL
These dyes are excellent. I used them to tie dye beach towels and they have really kept their color. So many colors to choose from and a little goes a long way.

This is the best product for dying cotton fabrics. I always get bright, intense, long lasting colors. It is a hit with the kids I work with at my church.
Rated by: Camille J. in Kennewick, WA
I am so glad I found this website and found the Procion MX fiber reactive dyes. I've already used all the dyes I ordered in January. I teach tie-dye classes, and the dyes give great results!
Rated by: Rydra K. in Kamuela, HI
I love procion dyes for tie dyes. The colors are rich and bright. The outfits I have made have mostly been for my kids. They take a lot of abuse. They also don't fade with a lot of washing.
Rated by: Ginger Y. in Spring, TX
These dyes can also be used for mixed media work on paper. I dilute about 1/8th of a teaspoon to about 3 ounces of water in a bottle that has a spout (such as a hair colour applicator bottle). The avacado green is beautiful & is great when used with quin. gold (Golden fluid acrylics) and burnt sienna. Besides the lovely colour, it's a great bargain, as it is highly concentrated.
Rated by: Janet B. in Humble, TX
I love these dyes for batik painting. I brought all the colors with me to Malaysia where I am living and just love the results. Much nicer than the local dyes available. My friends want me to leave them when I come back to the states
Rated by: Meagan B. in Tracy, CA
This is a great product. I use it for tie-dye and would recommend it to anyone for that purpose.
Rated by: Rolayne V. in Hillsborough, NJ
The Jacquard Procion MX Riber Reactive Dyes are wonderful! I've used other dyes that require chemical water and activating agents, (and they are excellent dyes) but these are so EASY to use. Just add water and paint away! The convenience makes it easy to do a project on the spur of the moment and in less time, and the results are great.
Rated by: Lori W. in Alturas, CA
Procion Dyes are wonderful! No comparison to Rit. Permanent, easy, and won't fade. MisterArt.Com isn't bad either. My order was perfect and delivered quickly.
Rated by: Erin E. in Minneapolis, MN
I'd only ever used Rit dyes before, but after using Procion, I'll never go back. The difference is like night and day! Used about 1.5 oz to dye a 10'x14' cotton muslin backdrop, and the color came out exactly as I expected, with no spotting, no stains in my washing machine, either! Good stuff.
