Exploring Colour, Texture & Special Effects

The second book in the C2C series puts a new and fresh spin on a well-established process, based on years of experience and miles of tray-dyed cloth! 

In simple terms it involves packing cloth into a tray of any size, pouring over single or multiple colours of dye and leaving it to work its magic.  The resulting cloth is glorious in texture and colour.  The marks achieved from various forms of manipulation are always fascinating and can range from being graphically crisp and detailed to soft-focus, haloed and gentle.  The colour combinations and palettes can range from the serene to the downright bizarre. 

‘Tray Dyeing’ is both an inspirational and ‘how to’ book.  The 44 pages contain clear step-by-step instructions on process, suggestions for methods of building on the technique, recipes, suppliers and so forth, accompanied by over 90 clear, instructional photographs.  It is user-friendly enough to encourage novices to have a go and inspirational enough to encourage ‘old hands’ to explore new territory.

The bonus DVD provides 45 minutes of guidance on mixing the dyes, arranging the cloth in the tray and distributing the dye solution  – a valuable accompaniment to the book as it’s just like being in a live workshop environment.
