Jacquard Procion MX Color Mixing Chart

(Also see How can I mix Procion MX dyes to get specific colors?.)

The chart below is the Jacquard dye mixing chart that was posted at Tie-dyed.com. You can obtain the current version of this chart by contacting Rupert Gibbon & Spider. Note that the catalog numbers in the table below are the ones used by Jacquard; for equivalents at other companies for the unmixed pure dye colors, see Which Procion MX dyes are pure, and which are mixtures?. (Equivalencies for the proprietary mixed colors cannot be found anywhere, because these vary from one company to another and are trade secrets.)

Warning: this chart may not always be entirely reliable, because it uses volume measurements, although the density of different dye lots may vary; only measurements by weight are truly reproducible.

Note for dyers outside of the US:
In the table below, one teaspoon (1 tsp.) equals 5 ml (5 cc).

**There are 4 pairs of colors = that show the same formula in the "parts" mixing column. When dye = concentrations are increased in the dye bath, there is often a color = shift.

Note: Small quantities of dye can be measured easily from a stock solution of 1 teaspoon of dye powder dissolved in 1/2 cup water. Use the following chart.

1 tsp. dry dye powder = 1/2 cup (24 tsp.) stock solution
1/2 tsp. dry dye powder = 1/4 cup stock solution
1/4 tsp. dry dye powder =6 = tsp. stock solution
1/8 tsp. dry dye powder = 3 tsp. stock solution
1/16 tsp. dry dye powder = 1 1/2 tsp. stock solution

Note for dyers outside of the US:
in the above table, one teaspoon (1 tsp.) equals 5 ml (5 cc).
