Re: Dylon recipes for a rainbow of color!

I was wondering how to do this and now I know! Thank you for posting

Somebody said they are going to Wal-Mart to get the dyes, is this typical for Wal-Mart to carry, how much is the kit and is it safe to do while PG? OH, what is the name of this kit?

Re: Dylon recipes for a rainbow of color!

I just dyed some of mine last night. No kit, just individual packages in the craft section, pick your colors. My Walmart was out of a lot of colors so I won't get to do as many as I wanted but that's ok, I'll try again later. I didn't even think about it being safe to do while pregnant but I didn't notice any smell or anything. I'm going to try mixing some other colors to see what I can come up with, I found a RIT chart for costume colors online but not a Dylon chart- figured they'd be kind of close.

GL and have fun!

Re: Dylon recipes for a rainbow of color!

Well I have been dying for the last 2 days and only have 2 more batches. I made up some of my own colors too, so I will post pics and recipes when they are all done.

Re: Dylon recipes for a rainbow of color!

Ok adding mine.



going clockwise

Perwinkle (see first post, this is the darkest purple)
Rose (see first post)
Baby Pink (2 tsp pink)
Raspberry (2tsp red, 1/2 tsp pink, 1/2 tsp purple)
Robin's Egg (see first post)
Calm Sea (2 tsp turquoise, 1 tsp blue)
Moss (2 tsp lime, 1/2 tsp blue, 1/2 turquoise)
Lavender (2 tsp purple w/ 1/2 hour dye time)
Plum (well was suppose to be plum 2 tsp purple, 1/2 tsp blue, 3 tsp pink)

and all 18 of them together

fyi, i dyed 2 premium unbleached indian prefolds at a time.

I also did a neon yellow that i didn't like so i re-dyed it the moss color. Here is before it went back into the dye (2 tsp yellow, 1 tsp lime)


I am not really happy with the laveneder, look a little too pale blue, so that might get re-done. But it was so happy to pull them all out of the dryer!

Re: Dylon recipes for a rainbow of color!

Fabulous! I'm just getting started with this Dylon thing, but I too thought that I was stuck with the colors shown on the packages. Just did some beautiful, vibrant fuschia ones, but I would like to do some pastels, too.

Thanks!

Those are beautiful Melissa! I use a fixer too so maybe that's why mine come out darker...hmmm.... I love the pastels. the moss color will definately be tried out and the really light blue i love too.

Re: Dylon recipes for a rainbow of color!

Thanks

Interesting, I didn't even know there was a fixer. I thought it was just different lighting. Plus, I dyed 2 unbleached premiums... Didn't know what you did. But i them And we were having a really bad storm that day and I didn't finish the diapers till it was dark, so my lighting was HORRIBLE I am waiting for the sun to reappear one day so i can get some better pics.
