Description: Beginning with studio practices and safety rules, this information-packed handbook is appropriate for both newcomers and experienced dyers but assumes that readers have a serious interest in textile design. An overview of dyeing starts with fibers and fabrics and discusses all aspects of the dyes favored by textile studios-- fiber reactive, acid, vat, and disperse-- before explaining discharging, screen printing, monoprinting, stamping, stenciling, resist dyeing, de vore, and painting. Would-be fabric artists are advised along the way to identify a personal approach to dyeing-- "free spirit?" "rule-follower?-- "and color photographs of work by today's top fiber artists elucidate prevailing styles. Recipes and techniques are accompanied by step-by-step instructions with photographs, and a concealed spiral binding allows the book to lie flat. Ten appendices include a worksheet for recording chemicals, procedures, and costs for all projects; a guide to washing fabric; descriptions of stock solutions, thickeners, and steaming; a metric conversion table; and a guide to water temperatures.
