non-dischargeable black dye
  • Hi,
    I'd like to apply thickened black dye to silk organza that will not discharge very much after setting. Pro H used to work for me but the remazol and acid dyes discharge. Do you have any suggestions? I would like to have a strong black with a discharged acid dyed back ground.
  • Hi Virginia,

    If I'm understanding your question you are looking for a black dye that will not discharge.
    Unfortunately, I don't have a hard and fast answer for you. One possibility is the Procion MX Jet Black (item #PMX150). I know the dischargability for that dye is poor, however, I'm not sure that it will meet your needs. Certainly, it should be worth your time to test it.

    hope this helps,

  • Annette,

    I will give that a try, thanks for the suggestion.
