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.

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.

I was disappointed that "Ann Johnston's Color by Design - Second Edition" isn't spiral bound like the first edition.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example; adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in size Large should give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
