In this comprehensive DVD, fiber artist Candy Glendening shares all! From her dyeing techniques and explorations into color theory, to her approach to quilting and “free-motion machine sketched” motifs, Candy takes viewers step-by-step through her creative process. Learn how Candy uses low-water immersion dyeing with fiber-reactive dyes to create single-hued and multihued cotton fabrics for use in her art. Candy’s recipes for 6 luscious jewel-tone hues are included on the DVD. You’ll learn how Candy’s training as a research scientist allows her to dye a very specific color and consistently match that color each time she dyes. She also demonstrates how she uses free-motion machine sketching as a design element in her work. Each step of the process is accompanied by specific examples that feature Candy’s unique, colorful aesthetic.
