Simple cold-water dyes can unleash the power of color in your favorite fabrics to glorious effect. Clear, detailed instructions inspire you to try direct dyeing, layered dyeing, painting with dye, and pattern dyeing and folding techniques. Other approaches introduce resists such as flour starch and potato dextrin and devoré in which fabric is 'burnt out' to create textured looks. Recipes show how to mix jewel-like colors, while dyeing methods range from simple to advanced. Follow the charts of suggested combinations, or explore your own sense of beauty to create a wealth of styles nobody has ever made before.
