Tip Of The Week : Developing Colour

If you want to develop a rich base colour using transfer dyes or paints, try mixing several different shades of the colour, and apply them in layers across the cloth.  Tear up some of the sheets of paper, to give irregular shapes, and apply them randomly.  This gives a much more interesting finish than a single application of flat colour.  You can see a variety of reds in this piece, despite the colours showing up from below.
