Recipes for DYLON Multi-Purpose mixtures
More DYLON colour tones
We are often asked why certain shades that are so important for professional dyers have been removed from the DYLON range. Unfortunately, we cannot give you an answer as we do not know the circumstances that led to such decisions.
We could get the recipes for some of the very well-known colour tones from the former DYLON palette. With a good scale, self-mixing should not be a problem.
All colour recipes are for 500 gramm of fabric (dry weight)
Indian Corn (01) = 2,5gr. of Golden Glow (05)
Carnival (13) = 20gr. of Rose of Paris (12)
Peach (60) = 2,5gr. of Golden Glow (05) + 10gr. of Rose of Paris (12)
Pewter Grey (61) = 5gr. of Ebony Black (08) + 5gr. of Arabian Night (16)
Forest Green (62) = 5gr. of Emerald (25) + 5gr. of Jungle Green (26)
The colour tone 'Arabian Night' has been removed from the range approx. four years ago. One of the most important tones, as it is a very pure blue.
Now here are good news for you: from August this tone will be listed again in the range. So 'Pewter Grey' can be mixed without problems.
