    Default Dye question

    Hi guys,

    Anyone know the ratio yellow to orange dye to get sunburst?

    Thanks in advance

    Anyone know what the science is behind adding the yellow first, and then the red, rather just adding a mix of the two?

    To get fluo sunburst..... fluo yellow first then a micro(less than 1%) amount of fluo pink. Too much pink will produce fluo orange through to magma and then to fluo red

    But why does it need to be yellow first, on its own, followed by the pink/red? What would be different in the result of you added the yellow and the micro amount of fluo pink/red at the same time?

    Perhaps the reason is not scientific but more 'artistic technique ' and to do with how the materials absorb dye, especially the first layer of yellow. This must affect how the material can then absorb the red overdye.
    To really see what difference the overdye versus mix dye, you would have to view them side by side.

    The reason (if there is a difference in the result) has to be scientific, surely? For sure, do it both ways, and then look at the results, side-by-side, and see what difference there is, if any. And that is my question... what is the difference, if any?

    Sorry, it's a bad choice of words from me. Of course you are correct in that there is a scientific reason for everything.
    I'm sure they look different side by side, but perhaps to see why you would need to look at them under magnification. Maybe the overdyed version has a spectrumised effect or other texture that gives it the desired appearance when viewed normally ?
