This is THE book for those wanting to learn to those well versed in using Procion MX dyes. The author provides an amazing amount of information within the 128 pages of this book. I truly enjoyed the section on how she describes mixing a select few colors of dyes and then producing a large array of color combinations (color theory). Additional info within this great book are: materials needed in the processes described, types of fabric one can use with these dyes, various methods/recipes for dyeing fabric, list of suppliers (UK, Canada and USA), and most importantly, safety factors to remember when using these dyes. I also enjoyed learning a new type of resist - flour paste (although it has been around for years, I'm sure)! I cannot wait to begin using my Procion MX dyes a new way by applying some of things described in this book...now my number one book for dying fabric. What fun!!!

Is a good book

i have never dyed much; i tried rit a couple of times & was NOT impressed. however, i have clothing that would just be SO much better if they were slightly darker, or a completely different color, or if they had color embellishments in particular places. i knew rit brand & the like were just not going to give me the flexibility & quality that i needed for what i want to do.
after purchasing this book, i immediately read the parts i needed to use & skimmed the rest for future reference.
i wanted specifically to know about immersion/vat dying, & then became excited to try painting dye directly onto some pieces i have as well. this author/artist has excellent, common-sense suggestions for beginners (which i am one of), recipes, instructions, tips & a wonderful array of techniques which she explains nicely. i feel like everything i need to know about dying natural fabrics is in this book & i am incredibly pleased to have it. this book is definitely worth having if you feel a need to do artistic coloring with your fabrics & paper.

I absolutely love colors!! I have a real hunger, thirst, and excitement for it--always have! This book is full of vibrant color and so are her others. I get very disappointed when I look through a book that's suppose to inspire me with color but instead I wonder: "Why did they put this out"? This artist books are BEAUTIFUL!! She did an excellent job.

You won't go wrong purchasing her books. I wish I could attend her workshops. She's that good!! I got my hands on everything I could by this author and I won't be putting them up for resale at all. They are for keeps!! Now, I'm very motivated to create.

I began hand-dyeing fabrics for my quilting. I love the vibrant colors and have created many beautiful gradations. However, so far working with the information in my books and on-line classes I was left unable to truly predict my colors, and therefore unable to apply color theory. I bought this book hoping for that information. I got the book today, and have already read and re-read the sections that will help me in that area. I am so excited by the new information I have found here that I wrote this review now, because if her methods work as well as they appear that they will, I will be too busy dyeing to write reviews!!
