Mordants for natural dyes - an ebook
This comprehensive ebook covers all the basic info about mordanting natural fibres for the plant dyeing process.
I share my take on metal mordants, the way I approach it in my personal practice, and in my dye studio business, as well as the recipes I use and recommend. I also included a chapter about alternatives to metal salts and useful tips for making patterns with mordants.
This ebook will be great for years who want to go deeper with their practice and understand how lasting colours are made.
PLEASE NOTE: In this publication, I talk about mordants only and did *not* include scouring, extracting and dyeing info, nor any plant dyeing recipes.
This ebook is over 70-page, including many photographs.
