Jacquard Procion MX Fuchsia 040 dye is a “cold water dye” that is fixed chemically rather than with heat. This unique property sets Procion MX apart from all other dyes and establishes them as the undisputed king of backyard dyeing, batik and tie dye.
Because Procion dyes are used away from the stovetop, they are also ideal for shibori, ice dyeing, as well as tub and low water immersion dyeing. Additionally, they are great for printing, direct painting and other “alternative” dye applications. Because it is a fiber-reactive dye, Procion MX forms a strong covalent bond with cellulosic fibers, making it the most permanent and wash fast of all dyestuffs.
Mix the concentrated dye powder with tap water. This creates the most vibrant colors possible for cotton, linen and other plant-based fabrics. Usually, Procion dyes are used with a soda ash fixative. Add this directly to the dye bath or use it to pretreat the fabric as in tie dyeing and other “batch setting” techniques. Typically, one 2/3 oz bottle will dye more than 1 lb of dry fabric. However, very bright colors will require more dye and pastel colors will require less.
Tie dye, immersion dyeing, batik, screen printing, direct application, gradation or ombré dyeing, sprinkle dyeing, as well as ice dyeing and more.
Cellulose Fibers: cotton, linen, canvas, hemp, jute, ramie, sisal, paper, as well as rayon and more.
Colour Mixing: Typically, one 2/3 oz (19 g) bottle will dye more than 1 lb (45 kg) of dry fabric. (Very bright colors will require more dye and pastel colors will require less.)
