Descrizione

Now We Can Dye Happy! Formulas for more than 900 colors take the guesswork out of creating the exact color you want, when you want it. A simple and straightforward approach to fabric dyeing makes playing with color fun and exciting. Learn the basics and try a variety of specialty techniques such as twisting, pleating, layering, and painting. Dye in lots from 1/4 yard to 1 yard, or use multipliers for more. Now you have Linda's personal "recipe book" to mix any colors you can imagine. Learn how to make rainbows, subtle gradations, and unique patterns using common brands of dye, and then use your hand-dyed fabric for any project from quiltmaking to wearables to fiber art.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Addition To A Fabric Dyer's Library!, May 24, 2010By M. E. Johansen "ZQuilts" (Washington State, USA) - See all my reviews(REAL NAME) (VINE VOICE) This review is from: Fabric Dyer's Dictionary: 900+ Colors, Specialty Techiniques, The Only Dyeing Book You'll Ever Need! (Paperback)This is a new book that arrived today from C&T Publishing. Despite the fact the the author, Linda Johansen, and I share a last name -I don't know her. Ratz! My favorite dyeing books have always been Anne Johnston's and Elin Noble's. I started dyeing cloth by using them and always refer back to them. This book, however, will definitely have a new place next to these others in my library. This is a book that I really, really like. It is written clearly, concisely and is exceptionally well illustrated. The book is laid out well. The basics are, of course, covered in the beginning of the book with detailed handling and mixing instructions. She also goes over the importance of record keeping - something that I was never very good at doing. I just always loved the kismet of the process - I liked never knowing what would happen. She compares the clear, muted and black colors offered by both ProChem and Dharma Trading. It's a handy little table. Each page details instructions for using fat quarters, half yards and yards of fabrics. This is a nice, handy way to present the needed information.he pages below are for creating a rainbow. She delineates the process for clear, muted and dark rainbow colors. Clear, concise and easy to understand. The end of the book is devote to some specialty techniques; tie dying, rolling, patterning, layering, using dye powders and pleating and dippingLinda Johansen has had 5 books, I think it is, published through C&T Publishing. I am so pleased to have this as an addition to my dyeing library. I think it's a book that will please anyone who has an interest in hand dyeing their own fabrics.
