Coloration Project in Advanced Textile Science
- Sara J. Kadolph (Iowa State University)
Advanced Textile Science includes a six-week unit on dyeing. We study dye and color mixing theories, fiber-dye chemistry, equipment, and color matching, fastness, and uniformity. We dye cotton with direct and reactive dyes and wool with acid dyes using subtractive primaries (yellow, magenta, and cyan). We mix dyes to produce a color wheel of primary and secondary colors. Each student has a specific task that changes with each lab and receives samples of each color.
