Results of my recent experiments ~ You can process acid dyes by the same methods you would use for fiber reactive dyes, by using protein fibers including silk and an acid fixative. Those are:
- add fixer (acid in this case) to an immersion dyebath
- add acid directly to the dye for printing and painting
- presoak the fabric in an acid solution for printing and painting
