You can dye your fabric in a pot - in fact you will get better results using the stove top method with the [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/aciddye/index.php"]Acid Dye[/url]. You can find the instructions [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/aciddye/instructions2.php"]here[/url].

Hi Tracey,

The amount of dye you would use depends on a couple of things. For instance, to dye 16 ounces of fabric a pale shade of #605 Pumpkin Orange - you'd want to use about 1/4 ounce of dye, for a deeper shade of the same color you'd bump the amount up to 1/2 ounce. However, if you are dyeing (on the far extreme) with #639 Black and wanted very dark color you would use up to 3 ounces of dye. There is a [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/aciddye/instructions1.php"]Dye Quantities Chart[/url] that will give you specific information regarding specific colors [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/aciddye/instructions1.php"]here[/url].

If you have any more questions - let us know.
