Happy: I’ve just begun to get into using different dyes. I would suggest you get a color wheel and play with mixing various colors. My wife bought me a dozen canning jars so what ever I mix I label with what I mixed and the color. I only mix 2 oz of water based at a time(1/8 trans tint)
One thing I found out the hard way, I made a “quilt top box” out of maple and dyed the quilt pattern with a blue dye.(looked really good) I did not seal the dyed pieces and when I applied the poly finish it smeared. I would suggest sealing whatever you dye to eliminate this. I know I will. Good luck
