hi,


Can I use the idye poly for tie dyeing or painting on polyester fabrics?
If so what are the instructions that I need to follow?

thanks!

The[url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/idye/"] iDye Poly[/url] is not appropriate for direct application tie dye (such as is used with[url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/procionmx/"] Procion MX[/url]) nor is it appropriate for painting as a fair amount of heat is necessary in order to set the dye correctly. One could tie a piece and dip dye into a very hot vat (essentially using the stove top method described on the packet), however, that would give you single color pieces.

There aren't any dye products on the market for use by home dyers that are appropriate for use in a tie dye process with polyester.
One thing you might want to look at is using a pigment product such as our [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/paints/dyenaflow/"]Dye-Na-Flow[/url]. This is a very light bodied, low viscosity fabric paint with which you could achieve a tie dyed look on any fabric. While this product is a fabric paint, with a little experimenting you should be able to create the look you are after.
