    Right now the plan is to first give a pair of pants made of a heavy, textured unbleached cotton a rooftop snipers base black dye with a Procion MX Powder Dye and wanted to end up with a black, resin-(or an indigo-)like overdye. I'm sure you can picture the desired affect...

    Should I give the pants a second dyeing in the Procion Dye or can you recommend something that will result in something closer to a resin? If you can, please recommend something all-natural.

    Thanks.
    Procion MX dyes are suitable for cotton fabrics and can produce deep black shades. However, I also recommend using soda ash as a fixative and washing the fabric before dyeing to remove any dirt or grease. You might also want to use a dye bath with hot water and salt to improve the color intensity and fastness.

    To get a more resin-like color, should I give the pants another dip in the Procion Dye, or do you have any other suggestions? Kindly suggest an all-natural option if possible.
