Custom shades of dye can be created using a recipe on Rit's color chart. Rit offers nine core shades with multiple colors in each spectrum that can create new colors when mixed together.
Mixing Rit's core shades can also create Pantone seasonal dyes and even achieve Rit's archive colors. Most of its dyes come in both powder and liquid variations, with several techniques for mixing and dyeing fabric. Despite Rit's limited number of core shades, the ability to mix them makes it easier to produce a specific shade. Rit can make custom shades of dye; Rit's specialists can consult a customer's photo to create a special formula to produce a particular shade.
