English Translations of Dreamline Textile Painting Recipes

These two tables are just my attempts to translate the charts at Dreamline.nl; please see their site for the originals and to purchase dyes and dyeing supplies in the Netherlands:

Meng verhoudingen Citrien, Robijn en Turquoise
Meng verhoudingen Rode Jaspis, Barnsteen en Azuriet

The names, as translated from Dutch, are an elaborate scheme of precious stones. The colors shown in the leftmost column of the table below are only html approximations of the swatches shown at the Dreamline web site. How accurately they are displayed will depend upon the monitors, mine as well as yours; they will not print well. See the more reliable color charts at Dreamline:

Kleurenkaart Citrien, robijn en Turquoise
Kleurenkaart rode jaspis, barnsteen

Note that the dyes you buy are standardized by weight, not volume, so you must use a scale and weigh out your dyes to take advantage of the following recipe proportions.
