Disperse Dyes were developed specifically to colour almost anything synthetic including polyester, nylons, plastics etc etc.
When Disperse Dye is used for immersion-dyeing the dye-bath must be over a heat-source to keep the temperature at a gentle rolling-boil.
To print a design onto synthetic fabric the Disperse Dye should be made into a Transfer Dye by dissolving the powder into water to the desired strength to make an 'ink'. This is then painted onto layout or copy paper. The painted paper is placed face-down onto synthetic fabric, covered with baking-parchment, and ironed over with a dry iron which transfers and fixes the colour design to the synthetic fabric.
To make specific printed marks on the paper (eg using a print-block) the 'ink' should be thickened with the Transfer Dye Thickener to make it into a print-paste.
TIP: The colour on the paper will appear dull and the true bright colours will only appear once the colour has been transferred
