Color by Accident: Low-Water Immersion Dyeing

$24.95

Note from Kathrin (aka Blazing Shuttles): This is one of my favorite dye books! Ann Johnston wrote it as a guide for dyeing fabric, but many of her techniques are useful in dyeing yarn, too. Her approach to dyeing engenders a sense of experimentation as she gives a few recipes and enough instruction to make sure your dye work is colorful and colorfast without overwhelming you with too many rules and regulations. A totally wonderful book for playful dyers.

“Color by Accident” is designed to be used as a workbook and reference manual for the adventuresome. Beginning and experienced dyers will find “Color By Accident” to be an inspiring guide for creating one-of-a-kind fabrics not available commercially.

It includes Five Variations on a versatile method and 54 tested recipes. NOT required are expensive equipment, dangerous chemicals or specialized studio space. Other books teach how to repeat a method and reproduce colors. This book points the way to exploring new color combinations and to achieving fabric that will be unique and visually complex. But be warned! As one of Ann’s contemporaries reports, this process can be addictive.
