Cardinal Red #38
Our vibrant CARDINAL RED fabric dye is inspired by the bird; but only the males have the bright red feathers.
Red dye can be used to make pink; use less red dye for pastel pink and add a small amount of blue or purple with the red to make hot pink or magenta. Adjust dye amounts to be more/less as needed and always test your dye colour.
WHAT TINTEX CAN DYE: Tintex is NOT for 100% polyester or 100% acrylic fabric/material. Tintex Fabric Dye is created for most washable fabrics (example: cotton, linen, silk, nylon, acetate, rayon, wool and viscose). Blends are dyeable if the majority of your fabric is made of a 'suitable fabric' (example: 65% cotton 35% polyester).
PREPARE FABRIC BEFORE: Wash fabric so it is clean & damp before dyeing and for best results always do a fabric test before and adjust amount as needed.
HOW TO MAKE DIFFERENT COLOURS: Darker colours use more dye, you can make pastels (with any colour) by using less dye.
HOW MUCH TO USE: Use 55g for 1 pound (454g), of cotton, linen, silk, spandex & viscose; use 110g for 1 pound (454g), of nylon, acetate, rayon & wool; double the usual amount for dark or bright colours. Get basic product instructions here.
