Colour on Cloth helps you unleash the power of dye on fabric.

As the stunning photographs of finished fabrics in this book show, gloriously colourful effects can be created on fabric using simple cold-water dyes.

The range of techniques include direct dyeing, layering dyeing, painting with dye, pattern dyeing and folding techniques, using resists such as flour starch and potato dextrin and devore, in which fabric is "burnt out" to create a textured effect. Many different fabrics are used, such as cotton, silk, satin, linen and cotton velvet, as well as threads and stitching.

Easy-to-follow dye 'recipes' allow you to mix up the jewel-like colours used throughout the book, and guidance is given on the technique aspects of colour and dyeing including saftety considerations.

It will appeal to all those involved in textiles, such as embroiderers, quilters and textile atrists, as well ast students and teachers of design.

Most importantly, the author urges you to develop your own creativity and learn to experiment with colour.
