Description
Novice dyers can start with basic gradations, such as a clear dark rainbow or muted light rainbow. Dyers with a bit more experience can try out increasingly complex color progressions, such as those ranging from clear orange to clear blue, or muted green to clear red. Finally, readers can also try out their new dye color recipes on the more advanced techniques (such as twist and ombre dyeing) presented at the end. Whether you’re an experienced or beginner fabric dyer, if you’re looking for a concise and user-friendly guide to mixing your own hues, this book is for you.

About the Author
Linda Johansen lives in western Oregon and loves the lushness of the wet climate. She can be found either dyeing in her laundry room or sewing and quilting in her studio.  She loves getting beginners started with quilting, fabric dyeing, and art quilting.  When she isn't up to her elbows in fabric, she's likely walking or doing agility with her border collies, gardening, dancing with her husband, or reading.

This book is a fabric dyer's dream reference, containing dye recipes for over 900 colors. Johansen keeps the introduction chapter on the dyeing process straightforward and brief; the book's main focus is on creating countless different hues from only a few key dye colors. Novice dyers can start with basic gradations, such as a clear dark rainbow or muted light rainbow. Dyers with a bit more experience can try out, increasingly complex color progressions, such as those ranging from clear orange to clear blue, or muted green to clear red. Finally, readers can also apply their new dye color recipes to the more advanced techniques (such as twist and ombre dyeing) presented at the end. Whether you're an experienced or beginner fabric dyer, if you're looking for a concise and user-friendly guide to mixing your own hues, this book is for you. (Quilting Arts Magazine, June 1, 2010 )
