How to Dissolve Solvent Soluble Dyes
Dyes give a strong colour at between 0.01% - 0.001% on weight of solvent
To dissolve the dye:
- Add a small quantity of solvent to an accurately weighed out dye, to wet out the powder.
- Add a little more solvent to the wetted dye powder and stir thoroughly to ensure the dye is fully dissolved. Repeat this step if necessary.
- Once all the dye is in solution and no visible particles of dye remain, make up to volume.
- This stock solution can then be used to mix with stock solutions of other colours to achieve the required shade.
