Natural Color


In Natural Color, author Sasha Duerr says, "Making natural color from scratch is much like cooking - it's the same process of using recipes, finding the right ingredients, experimenting, and timing." She chose to make her natural dyes from seasonal weeds, food-by-products, and common everyday plants that can be found in your own backyard, kitchen or local florist and yield gorgeous colors. Citrus peels, pine cones, seeds, leaves, fruits, flowers, roots, pits, barks can all be made into fashionable dye colors without harming the environment. Based on the seasonal availability of her dye plants, the author divided her projects into sections by season. Brush-lettered chapter headings, gorgeous photographs of ingredients, process and projects and the how-to techniques of natural dying make this book a must-have for a versatile crafter's library.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
