Can this be done successfully? And if so...what ratio of water to dye should I use to ensure a good rich color? Immediate answers would be welcomed as I am racing to get Christmas presents done :eek: ! Thanks

Tie Dyeing with the[url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/idye/"] iDye [/url]poly is a bit tricky as it is very important to achieve the high temperatures available only with dyeing in a pot on a heat source. One could use a low water immersion method, carefully, as you'd want to ensure that the water did not completely evaporate and allow the fabric to scorch. It would be necessary to predissovle the [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/idye/"]iDye[/url] and then pour that over the fabric/clothing with enough water to ensure that the entire piece is well wetted. [url="http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/lowwaterimmersion.shtml"]Paula Burch[/url] discusses low water immersion on her site, using [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/procionmx/"]Procion MX [/url]dyes - one could use a similar method keeping in mind that it would be necessary to maintain a heat source under the dye pot.
And just as a caveat - I personally haven't tried this method, so don't know just how it will work out, so I'd suggest a trial run with something you arn't terribly invested in.
