Not really. 1 packet per large mason jar (24-32 oz) will work fine.

I think the instructions to use it for dyeing clothes say 2-3 gallons per packet, so that is a very high concentration.

Can't help you with the acetone mix as I avoid that.

For detergent/soap mixes I use about 1/4 - 3/8 of a teaspoon per 4oz of detergent.

Thanks for that info. Does the detergent help to thicken the dye? i have used shaving cream, but with only some success. I guess its all trial and error.

I use detergent to make "dye paint", more or less. If you can find my earlier posts in dye a day threads, i often gave extensive details. Or find the couple "how its made" threads.
