It’s here! A spiffed up and updated version of Ann Johnston’s best selling surface design “bible” Color by Design (2nd Edition) still covers all the basics (and not so basic) forms of fabric surface design using our very own pure Fiber Reactive Dye colors. Painting, printing, texturizing and other mark making using a variety of processes and tools are discussed. Learn about resists, thickeners and discharge agents and enjoy a thorough exploration of the color wheel as it is expressed through these vibrant and unique dyes.
Fast, Simple, and Exciting...Color by Design shows you how to dye cotton and silk in an incredible range of colors and patterns without changing the feel of your fabric. Using every tool imaginable-from brushes, sponges, stamps, and blocks to rollers, sprays, silk screens, and more, you will discover an endless array of techniques. Right away, you will be able to create your own distinctive marks and colors, and with practice, you will create intricate designs with confidence and spontaneity. The fun never stops!

I keep looking at the pictures and getting ideas. Referring to the instructions while I work is easy. Every thing is laid out clearly and concisely. I especially like the list of supplies needed.
