5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully illustrated and inspiring book., 12 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Skydyes is a beautifully illustrated book that makes you want to start painting your own fabric immediately. The instructions are clear and simple, making it easy to achieve results as good as those illustrated. The gallery of quilts gives plenty of ideas for using the fabrics that you create. It is a pleasure to browse through the pages even if you don't get around to trying any of the projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have book, 21 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't tell you how much I love this book. The most fun I have had in crafting projects for a long time, just like being a kid again. The projects make it easy to follow. I recommend making the mixing chart first as this helps get familiar with what the paints can do. It's a great buzz to paint your own fabric, it adds such a personal touch to any project. When all the projects are cut up and put together they really look profesional. I was'nt dissapointed and I don't think you will be either, if making something unique is your bag this book will rock your boat. If you buy this book and love it I recommend the DVD of the same name, the author is a brilliant lady. Have fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic book, 9 May 2011

As a long time crafter I wanted to have a go at fabric painting. There is something very scary about that vast expanse of white fabric but this book really makes you feel you can have a go and that nothing you do is wrong or wasted.I would say that this book is suitable for a novice like me. Although I have experience of painting and colour mixing I wasn't sure about fabric paints. The author gives you details of how she mixes paints, how she achieves specific colours and she gives you simple colour photos showing the colours achieved by mixing specific paints. All of the instructions are very simple and come with photos. She explains things simply in a down to earth manner.Theres no jargon but the lady is American so expect US spelling and references to places in the US.She gives information on fabrics to use and how they will take paint. The main chapters are Getting started - paints, fabrics, applicators etc. The Sky - how to paint different types of sky. Beneath The Sky - painting the earth, sea, gardens, landscapes and how to achieve sunprints. Beyond the Sky chapter is a miscellany of how other artists have used the authors painted fabric in their work.There is a list of where to get resources but as this is an American book they are all in the US. I don't see this is a problem since you can get almost anything on line now.This is the personal tale of how this artist works from her fabric and paint preferences to how she dries her work.
