mixing forest green
  • does anyone know what idye colors to mix in order to come up with a forest green for cotton fabric?
  • Advising for color mixes is always a bit tricky - not least because my idea of Forest Green may be very different than your idea of Forest Green.
    That said, I'll plunge in anyway. I think your best bet will be to start with one of the deep blues, either Royal Blue #419 or Navy #420 then add a nearly equal or slightly greater amount of Golden Yellow #406. I would predissolve both dyes (use very hot water) and then add the blue to the yellow until the dye solution looks about right to you. Keep in mind that the more dye in the bath, the deeper the shade of color.

    Hope this helps,
