acid dye chartreuse too bright
  • I dyed a nylon /down jacket with acid dye in chartreuse ... it came out flourescent - It looks like a construction safety vest!

    I do not have any more chartreuse but I do have some gunmetal (and there are no local stores I can buy the product from, would have to order online.)

    I was thinking of adding a very small amount of gunmetal in the washing machine, and adding the jacket - hoping that the color would be musted a little.

    What do you think?
  • Hi,
    Worth a try... especially if its too bright now. The worst case scenario is you'll have to strip the color out and start again but at least this method gives you another option before that step.
