I used one cup of water in each container and then added the amounts of pre mixed dye to each cup. A piece of soda soaked calico and soda soaked poplin went into each container, just pushed down, not mixed around. Hoping to achieve a textured appearance by not stirring everything around. The fabric remained in the dye for approximately 18 hours, then rinsed in cold water, again in the washing machine followed by a warm wash with Ariel colour liquid.
The pre-mixed dye was 1.5 tsp to 1cup + 1 tbsp of water.
