More than 50 stylish projects using the traditional tie-dye method. Tie-dye is an easy, rewarding and affordable craft that can turn silks, cottons and simple ready-made garments into dramatic fashion statements. Author Melanie Brummer is an expert at reviving clothes, linens and draperies with this creative craft skill. Contemporary Dyecraft features more than 50 resist-dyeing projects that are easy to do and yield beautiful one-of-a-kind results. Methods used are bucket-dyeing, dip dyeing and dyeing in a washing machine. The book begins with an introduction to suitable fabrics, types of dye, paints and an explanation of resist dyeing. The required equipment is largely household items that are inexpensive and readily available. The projects use eight dyeing styles: flat color, graded color, crazed patterns, circles, stripes and coils, geometric shapes, spirals and stitched patterns. The materials lists are minimal, such as fabric, string or rubber bands, a bucket and kettle, and the dye. The projects are rated by degree of difficulty and include: Skirt in a ball Reverse camouflage T-shirt Candy-striped silk scarf Water fantasy silk scarf Flowers on a shirt Parallel-striped Madiba shirt Contemporary Dyecraft is an excellent beginner's guide for anyone who wants to create new items or give new life to items already in their wardrobe.
