Color Works Book

We all love color—its boundless array of hues dazzles our eyes, expresses our moods, and enriches our very lives. Thanks to Deb Menz you can now explore colors with confidence in whatever craft medium you call your favorite.

This is the first book to bring the principles of color theory down to a practical level and apply them to knitting, spinning, weaving, surface design (including stenciling and rubber stamping), hand- and machine-embroidery, beadwork, quilting, and paper collage. Basic color concepts are presented in sections on color description, values, contrasting and complementary colors, warm and cool colors, undertones, using color relationships, and much more. But the real treat is seeing a dynamic palette of color harmonies worked up in each medium! This approach is invaluable for mixed-media artists or those who simply dabble in more than one craft. Also included is a pull-out color wheel and a very handy section of hue cards in perforated format that are easy to remove and use for planning, matching, and shopping for supplies. If understanding color is the bridge to creative expression, how did we ever live without this book?

Color Works for Spinners DVD

There’s magic in color, but creating wonderful color for spinning and felting is what you might call “practical” magic. Start with colored fiber – natural or dyed. Add a blending tool (a drum carder is Deb’s choice). Mix and play using some simple, basic color principles – and there’s no limit to the possibilities.

With Deb’s relaxed, enthusiastic guidance, you’ll learn:

  • Basic blending techniques
  • The language of color, which is the key to successful blending
  • Working with hue, value, and saturation
  • A down-to-earth approach to almost-perfect color matching
  • Working with color harmonies
  • Combining multiple blended batts
  • And much more.

Watching the colors roll off Deb’s drum carder is endlessly fascinating, and every new exercise suggests a hundred more that you’ll want to try for yourself. It’s an endless adventure.

Color and Yarn Design for Spinners DVD

With these simple, inspired approaches, anyone can design yarns that are rich, intriguing, complex, and effective. Deb Menz takes inspiration from the world around her—mother nature, photos, fabrics, anything that pleases her eye—and applies the “more is more” approach to creating fiber blends for spinning stunning single and plied yarns.

Learn how to:

  • Use a color wheel and value scale
  • Make friends with a few simple principles of color harmony
  • Train your eye to analyze the components of a color
  • Make effective blends for singles and plied yarns
  • Sample with enthusiasm and joy

And finally, you'll learn how to put it all together in a project that fulfills your dreams. Bonus: Printable pdfs of a standard color wheel and value scale included!

A Fiber Artist’s Guide to Color DVD

Not just another re-hash of the color wheel, The Fiber Artist’s Guide to Color with Laura Bryant brings a few basic color concepts to life in a way that can change how you see. You’ll be pulling your stash off the shelf, making "rivers" of color from light to heavy, creating color wraps that really work, and learning to manage color juxtapositions that will take your work beyond the ordinary.

Discover:

  • Weave drawdowns that go from ho-hum to WOW with a few simple color changes
  • Variegated yarns that really work—and ones that don’t
  • The Fibonacci series brought to life (and how it applies to the sex life of bees)
  • Woven scarves, jackets, and complete ensembles with colors to die for
  • And so much more

A new way of sorting color and seeing relationships becomes the basis for exploring color through several simple, yet clever, techniques. As Laura likes to say, "You don't get WOW from doing the expected!"
