Paint Two, Beam One: Dyeing Two Warps and Beaming Them Together as One





$12 (includes tax)

My technique for maximizing color in your weaving: Instructions on how to dye two warps in two distinct but complementary color palettes and then beam them together on your loom. This technique works especially well for warp-emphasis designs such as Echo Weave and Turned Taquete as well as Turned Twills, Double Weave, Deflected Double Weave, turned drafts (such as Turned Overshot) and simple Plain Weave. This is the handout I use for my 2 1/2-day workshop that I've taught at conferences and guilds in the United States.

Hi Denise - thank you for sending the OWMS download so promptly. I am also trying to order the 2nd download on DDW for collapse. When I click on the Order Now button nothing happens. I've tried two different browsers (Firefox and Chrome) on two different computers, as well as trying from my iPad. Suggestions? If you'd rather send me a PayPal invoice for that download, my PayPal email is: web@amyfibre.com Thank you!

Thanks Amy! I sent you a PayPal invoice -- but I also fixed the button so that it worked.
