1. Tells you at a high level the end-to-end process of tie dying
2. Has text, accompanied by black and white photos on how to tie.
3. Has at least one color photo of each finished tie dye project.
You will understand how to tie dye several different types of patterns, and be successful at your first attempt, if you follow the information and advice.
It wasn't until I received an amazing tie-dye DVD, extremely generous in the scope of its instructions and designs ("Learn How to Tie Dye" complete 3-volume set) that I realized how deficient this book really was. Another reviewer gave it as his opinion that Ms. Gleser would prefer you not to succeed; I would agree. Perhaps she's afraid of competition?--surely a groundless fear. Her extremely generalized instructions leave a lot to chance; you might end up with a decent item, but you're much more likely not to. She gives no tips to ensure success or make the process easier (and after decades of successfully selling tie-dye, she must know a lot). To add insult to injury, at the back of the book in the color plates are pictures of beautiful mandalas made by "tie dye experts" from her business. Yet there is not a word of instruction on how to make them. The implication, to me at least, is that she's happy to make money selling her unhelpful book to novice dyers who don't know any better, but she feels it's only the esoteric society of expert dyers like herself who are privileged to know the secrets of the more advanced techniques.
Don't waste your money on this book. I returned my copy.Read more ›
I was expecting some secret techniques for how to get the bright rainbow variations, how to keep the white areas white during a rinse and first wash...reviews of some dyes out there...and I didn't feel this book covered that area too well....but
The folding instructions are great!
easy to follow and I got some amazing results...
I was just frustrated with the actual dyeing recipes and techniques, I needed more detail in that dept.
but all in all
this is a pretty good intro to tye dyeing book!
