Dye for alcohol mixed with water dye
#3
  
So I bought the wrong dye. I wanted to top off a big jug of water borne dye but I bought an envelope of alcohol dye powder. I know it won't mix well in water. It tells you that right on the label. So, the question is can I mix this dye with a small amount of alcohol, making a super saturated alcohol mix then toss  it in with the rest of my water borne dye? I really wanted to use the water borne because of it's better penetrating properties and lack of lap marks on a big surface. OR do I bite the bullet and buy some more water borne dye powder?

Only one way to find out.  My guess is it will work OK as you propose.
