Hi, JACQUARD

I need to paint 100% poly LACE. The colors that i need are Wine Red (dark red) and Ashes of roses. Which colors do i need to mix for these two colors.

The wine red is an exact match for the crimson Idye poly. You could make it slightly more purple with a pinch of violet, but it looks good to me as is.

The ashes of roses could be mixed with 1/4crimson and 1/4 lilac. That would likely do nicely. You can cut the packet or dissolve the whole thing in a glass and pouring 1/4 of it into the dye bath.

Dyeing a sock before you put the lace in, can give you a good idea of the color so you can adjust as needed.

The Idye poly is activated by heat, so hot water is a no no and will make you lose dye. It is very washfast in cold water however. I have also found that particularly with reds like these, you should not dry on the line, especially in a very sunny place. The poly dyes are more prone to fading in the sun than some of our other dyes.

Other than that wash and wear as normal.
