In order to learn spot dyeing with these online courses, you need to actually practice with different colored carpet samples and do the dye work yourself. Spot dyeing takes a lot of practice and experience to get good.

Who this class is for :

People who cannot make it to an in person class and are willing to tackle learning spot dyeing by themselves. A self starter who will actually put in the work by themselves to learn and practice this craft.

Who this class is not for:

Someone who wants 100% guidance along the way or is colorblind. If you feel you are really truly bad with color or a person who has never taken an online class before I suggest trying to find one of our in person classes. You can find the schedule here: http://americolordyes.com/education-classes/. We offer private classes too if there isn’t one in your area.

That being said, this video is designed for you to spot dye along with me while you’re watching the video. You will have to get dyes and carpet samples to do this.

The first thing you should do is get some nylon carpet and put bleach on it. Start with just small spots like I have on the carpet samples in the video. Don't start with a big bleach spot on carpet for your first example. Trust me, I’ve taught a lot of cleaners how to spot dye and you’ll only make yourself frustrated by trying too work on larger bleach spots when you first begin. You will want to bleach out your carpet samples right away because it might take about 24 hours for the bleach to take its full effect, and you want to start learning tomorrow right? You should have a Professional Spot Dye Kit on hand to do the dyeing with. ( You can’t learn to spot dye if you don't have dyes). By having the Professional Spot Dye Kit you will have 40 colors at your side for topping colors. If you don't know what a topping color is don’t worry, I’ll explain it in the video and it will make all of your spot dye jobs look MUCH better than just using the 3 primary colors.

When I do something in the video like putting some powder dye in a cup… do the same thing! Some of it might seem simple but for you to get comfortable with carpet dyeing you need to “play with the dye” and learn your colors. It would be best to do it in the same order that I do it in. Try to use somewhat similar colored carpet samples as I do in the video. The colors I use are dark brown, taupes, beiges, tans, red and green.

Watch the clips in order and make sure to do the readings. I might have something written down that I didn’t say on the video or you might understand the way it’s written better than the nonscripted way I say it. Take notes because it enhances the amount you learn and remember.

People learn in different kinds of ways. Some things might not make sense to you the first time time I mention it in the video or when you read the PDF’s throughout the video, but when I rephrase the sentence later hopefully you’ll understand the second time.

If you have questions about carpet dyeing or maybe you didn't get something in the video, don't worry. I will invite you to our FaceBook Group ‘The Dyers Guild’ so you can ask questions

Best of Luck with Spot Dyeing! I sincerely wish you all the best in your dye adventures!

Sincerely,

Melody David

Americolor Corp CEO

PS- Practice makes perfect. Bleach some carpet and get to practicing!

Why an online did class? Because it makes sense, common sense and financial cents. How so?

The carpet dye business is becoming saturated with teachers overselling and over populating the market. Plus the last industry report is that 90% carpets being pumped out of the mills is polyester and olefin...carpets that are not dye-able. So why offer a comprehensive online class? Because it makes sense. 350.00 vs 3500.00 sense.


Yes, it's reasonable that before anyone who is considering investing 3500.00 and lose a week away from work consider taking an online dye class to have a foundation instead walking into a profession or an on hands class blindly. Why not test the waters with an easy to understand, re-viewable at their own leisure, taught by a 3rd generation dye person who has more knowledge and dyes than anyone in the industry?

This way the person can make an educated decision to see if they possess the ability, have the desire or just want a "foundation" to avoid walking into an on hands class with a strong understanding instead walking in completely green. Just makes sense, common sense, and dollars sense.

Ernie used to sell the color computer book that had color slides. I want to say it was $200+ back in the day and I believe that the colored slides had a shelf life on accuracy, but man was that a great tool when I was teaching new guys. You could see the light bulb go off in there heads. I don't know if it is still available, but I even used it in the field on rich, deep odd colors in patterned CGD.

Define "a lot of practice" generally. And how about a like to the spot dying kit pictured...how much, or is it included? Thanks...looks like a great class.

there is not a lot to define. Lots means as much as you need to master the trade. I could be fine with 100 to 200 spots to practice on some will be fine with five or six. NO WAY! it is included you need to pay for that separately and you need to pay dearly that kit ain't cheap but... It could make you a 100 fold in revenue

Here's a link to the professional dye kit, the one I show in the video. It's $335 with a 20% discount if you buy the online class: http://americolordyes.com/product/professional-spot-dye-kit/

To answer your first question, 'a lot of practice' really depends on the person and their eye for color. I've seen guys go to a job the very next day after taking a class and I've seen guys who take a few more weeks practicing with samples before they take their first job. It's really your preference based on your confidence level. If you've ever been curious about spot dyeing and have a hard time making it to a class & have a good eye for color, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't give this a shot.

You're right it's a great tool for learning. It's called the Dye Master's Color Guide, it's $125 Here's a link: http://americolordyes.com/product/dye-masters-color-guide-with-gray-scale-dvd/
