I'm glad I tested the dyes to verify their strength. Here is the swatch.
From this test I can see I have at LEAST 3 good primaries: The larger Intense Blue, both Sun Yellow and Golden Yellow, Fuchsia and Turquoise. The black is weak but I have a bit of "new" black from the shiori dyeing bottles which I didn't test since they are rather new. I will think up some color combinations and do at least 4 tray dyes and document it. They will be finished batching tomorrow. I usually post at 5am but tomorrow I will have to wash, dry and iron the batched fabric after I get home about 10am. See you then...
