Colors to Dye For - Primitive Rug Hookers Philosophy & Dyeing Primer
Author: Cynthia Gallant-Simpson
After decades of painting Narrative Americana Primitive paintings that have found their way into private collections world-wide and inclusion in the permanent collection of the Tokyo, Japan National Art Museum, I turned my hand to rug hooking. It did not take me long to realize that if I was going to work with my favorite antiqued, primitive colors that I'd have to create them myself.
Thus began one of the most rewarding and fascinating endeavors of my art career. Learning to create primitive colors not only with commercial dyes but from the garden and woods as well as my pantry shelf was not only eye-opening and a learning experience but also great fun. Now, I want to share the things I learned, the tricks I developed and full-color photos of some of my rugs. Here's to everyone else out there who is hooked on hooking!
