acid dye water/dye/fabric factor
  • Hello,
    I just spent the last month experimenting with the acid dyes and with no book to guide me I have a few novice questions.
    1.
    If I use 1/4 tsp. dye to one gallon water and then try that same mix with two gallons will it make a lighter dye? I am under the impression it is more about how much fabric is in the pot rather than a dye to water proportion.
    2.
    Does the amount of vinegar added affect the amount of dye absorbsion?
    I have been using more vinegar than recommended and getting very dark colors... maybe that is what I am doing that is making them so intense?
