Early textile dyers signed oaths that they would not reveal any of the process. Fortunately, author Carolyn Dahl openly shares the secrets of dyeing, painting, and patterning beautiful cloth she has gleaned in art schools. This guide is the next best thing to having a master artist in the studio.

Entertaining stories awaken memories of childhood coloring books, leaf prints, iron-on designs, and the tie-dyed T-shirts most of us experienced at some point in our lives. Readers will be inspired as they follow step-by-step photographs and instructions full of hints and secrets for using luminous color to transform white cloth into artistic masterpieces. Connoisseurs of the decorative arts and those who are merely curious about the fabrics they wear and use in everyday life will find much to interest them.

* Produce successful results without an instructor * Author relates own experiences, telling why a technique is done, giving more control to the dyer * Contains lots of fresh ideas

BookList - Barbara Jacobs
Now that painted furniture has been recognized and accepted as a suitable do-it-yourself medium, the transfer of many of those techniques--including sponging and marbling--to fabrics is now popular. English designer Ball, ably assisted by well-known American crafter Janitch, doesn't segment her lessons into explanation and then application via projects. Instead, she approaches the methods first with a design eye, exhorting readers to use their visual sense to discover patterns and motifs around them. Of course, extensive notes about color, materials, equipment, and preparation follow. Over 15 projects (e.g., a tartan desk set, roller blinds, and a petal lamp shade) are then inserted into the 10 techniques, with the bonus of additional color photographs and a few templates showcasing the work of contemporary fabric artists. Not necessarily for the beginning painter but a good guide for the practiced dabbler.
