Fabric Dyeing–Value Scales For Three Color Families - Rerun

This is another one of my most popular ever blog posts – close to 5000 views.


This Value Scale is for the Basic Color family.
I have taken several fabric dyeing classes from Carol Soderlund. I have blogged extensively about them before.
Color Mixing for Dyers: Part I is Carol's class where you dye over 1000 color formulas. With these samples you learn how to mix any one of these colors to create the exact color on your fabric.
We each made a book with all of the colors samples.
After you paste the samples in your book you still have little bits of each color left so Carol created this page where we can paste up a value scale with the colors we have dyed.

This is the value scale for the bright color family.

This is the value scale for the earth color family.
I can not recommend Carol's classes highly enough. If you want to learn to dye accurately and SAFELY take a class from Carol. You will NOT be sorry you did.

Carol is a wealth of information and you learn much more in this class than just dyeing the samples. You will learn how to apply the knowledge and you will enjoy every minute of her classes.
