Learn the secrets of tie-dying and create your own beautiful fabrics. This user-friendly book will show you how to create seven unique and beautiful designs. Clear, simple instructions, including photos of each stage of the tieing and dying, will guide you through the process. Full color photos show the stunning results possible. Includes a source listing for permanent, high quality dyes.
I have used this book for years as a resource for participants when running group tie-dye activities. I like the photos of the folding steps, the dying steps, and finally the finished product. There are many design options in the book - all participants have tried all of them with great success.
I've purchased several tie-dye books and DVDs, this is my primary "go to" book. Author does a fantastic job:
1. Tells you at a high level the end-to-end process of tie-dyeing
2. Has text, accompanied by black and white photos on how to tie.
3. Has at least one color photo of each finished tie-dye project.
You will understand how to tie-dye several different types of patterns, and be successful at your first attempt, if you follow the information and advice.
"This is a short book that gives a good overview of the tie-dye process and was just what I was looking for. Beginner information that's easily understood with some tips for some of the more comon tying patterns.....It absolutely demystifies the process of making gorgeous colored shirts and offers information about how certain colors work on the fabric and how to accommodate them so you don't drown out the lighter colors....I think it will be a great book for my daughter and I to work from....
