Methods are easy and intriguing Watch spontaneous designs develop when you try lasagna painting, monoprinting, splash and puddle and other unique techniques. Paint, dye and discharge and materials your mother never imagined! Burn your silk, rust your cottons and distress your felt --softexpressions dot com

This book is a must have for anyone working with fabric in experimental ways. It is loaded, and I mean LOADED, with surface techniques (over 25), each with photo step-by-step instructions and several different ways to use each one. In the back of the book is a section on fabric collage quilts with artist's examples, but the techniques could be used for many different projects in textile art. I plan on using it for my art dolls! Great book!! I'm pleased to add it to my library! --craftsonline dot com

Format: Paperback
Good ideas for revising learned techniques.
Good for those who like to 'play' & develop their own designs.

Some Fantastic printing ideas. A couple of the projects are not necessarily to my taste but the inspiration and technique behind them are really cool so I am looking forward to having a go at most of the projects in the book.

Fabric Art Projects 9 Oct 2011
By anne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was fascinated with the ideas and the way presented in this book that I ordered
two additional books she authored. I am taking two of her classes in November
at the International Quilt Show and reading the three books I have purchased
gives me great information on the classes I am attending. I certainly
recommend these interesting, informative and easy to follow instructions.
