Part homage and part how-to, this guide to the clever use of color in paper and textile arts is as motivating to budding artists and designers through its stunning finished projects as it is through the lessons. Textile artist Ruth Issett demonstrates her passion for color and its creative use through her striking examples, and she encourages artists to experiment and create their own relationship with color in their work. The book begins with detailed coverage of the range of coloring media and surfaces available to the contemporary textile artistincluding paints, dyes, Markal paintstiks, colored pencils, and pastelsand explores their effects on both fabric and paper and how they can be used with print and stitch. There follows an inspirational journey through all aspects of color, including color mixing; adding tiny touches of color; achieving intensity, vibrancy and depth; working with opacity, transparency and translucency; color selection and combination; and working with a limited palette.
