When dyeing clothing, it is often more practical to purchase a set of primary color dyes along with black and white than to buy a specific color dye for each project. In the case of hot pink, it may be difficult to find the suitable color in the store; it's also a color which cannot be easily substituted. Hot pink is quite different from any of the other pink dyes you are likely to see in the store.

Add red dye to a plastic container. Decide how much red to use, according to how much cloth you are dyeing. The mixture will be around two-thirds to three-quarters red, depending on the shade of red you are using and how light you want the hot pink to be.

Slowly add white to the mixture at a ratio of around one part white for five parts red. mix the dyes together with a stirring stick.

If you're making a cake or designing a t-shirt, you may find yourself in need of specific shade of color, such as teal. Instead of buying an entirely new shade of dye, you can create this color by mixing together colors you already have. The exact process for creating teal dye will depend on the kind of dying process you're undertaking, but the basic process is the same. Once you know the exact combination of colors you need to create teal, mixing them together is fast.

Place 1 tablespoon of blue dye into a bowl for clothing dye, or one drop for food dye. If you want to create a lighter color, you can use slightly less. The more dye you put into the bowl, the darker the color will be.

Put 1 tablespoon of green dye into the same bowl for clothing dye, or one drop for food dye. If you chose to put less than 1 tablespoon of blue dye into the bowl, ensure that you use proportionately less green dye.

Natural fibers—such as cotton, linen, silk, and wool—take dye much better than synthetics do. Dyeing is as much an art as a science, so don’t hesitate to experiment. For example, we like combining liquid dyes to come up with our own colors. Modify this technique for items other than fabric, immersing them in the dye and taking note of how each item takes the color.

You don’t have to start with white fabric—if you want to reinvent a colored item, try a color remover (similar to bleach, but nondamaging) before dyeing it. This will whiten or lighten the fabric so it can take on the new color.

1. Wash your fabric item if it is new. Cover work surface with a dropcloth. Fill a bucket, bin, or stainless steel sink (large enough to hold the fabric loosely) about halfway with very hot tap water or boiling water. (For wool, water should be warm, not hot.) Wearing rubber gloves, add liquid dye, mixing colors as desired (see Mixing Colors, right). Add salt if dyeing cotton or linen, or white vinegar for wool or silk; amount will depend on size of dye bath. We used ¼ cup of either salt or vinegar for a bath of about 1 gallon, ½ cup for 2 gallons, and 1 cup for 3 or more gallons. (These additions help the fabric take the dye.)
