Dyeing in Plastic Bags PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dyeing in Plastic Bags free pdf Helen Deighan started dyeing in plastic bags in the late 80's after being continually disappointed with her results using other methods. Her aim was clear, strong, dark colours. This necessitated individual dye baths for each small piece of fabric. But, the thought of hundreds of bowls and buckets filled her with horror. The solution was 'dyeing in plastic bags' and she has been at it ever since! Helen's easy-to-follow instructions and straightforward approach will put even the most inexperienced dyer at their ease. You can use everyday utensils - no need for special equipment. It helps you learn: to create a range of colour-coordinated or graduated fabrics suitable for patchwork- to make stunning tablecloth and napkin sets- and, simple techniques for dyeing threads in glorious colours. It offers sound advice for dyeing with children. It includes handy tips on record keeping and storage.

About Helen Deighan

As a professional textile artist, Helen Deighan has been making quilts since 1984. Initially working from existing patterns, she soon started developing her own designs. And, when she couldn't find the right colour or shade to fit - she dyed her own. Over the past ten years she has created many exciting dyeing effects using everyday household objects - from cat litter trays and drain pipes to her now famous plastic freezer bags! Helen's latest passion is designing and making textile coil pots.
