procion mx dye
  • I haven't used this dye in years, but still have the dye and squirt bottles. Problem is that I don't know how much dye to add to the squirt bottles. Can you help me?
  • I like to use about four teaspoons of dye per 8-ounce bottle, dissolved in water in which one tablespoon of urea per cup has already been dissolved. Don't forget the soda ash presoak.

    Note that Procion MX dye has a limited shelf life of one to two years. (Sometimes it will last longer.) Try a small-scale test before any huge project, to make sure your dyes are still good.
