Format: Paperback
When you first see the book it makes youi want to open it. 'Paper, metal and stitch' - will delight all dedicated craftspeople. I particularly like the detailed information on the various applications of lotions and potions that are normally found in most peoples craft rooms. Then there are the ideas which abound on every page. You finish up with an impitience to get stuck in - and have a go. It's so exciting. I am 70 and feel like a child again! Sad - no way. I'm a man.

Maggie Grey writes again 12 Oct 2005
By Bellis - Published on
Format: Paperback
In collaboration with Jane Wild, Maggie Grey has added a must have book for the 21st century textile artist or collage maker who uses fabric in the work.

Paper and metal are explored using very innovative techniques, the difficulties addressed, and the imagination stimulated.

One problem is the lack of common availability of some of the supplies. I live in Canada and there are no Canadian sources listed, theough quite a few US ones.

A time spent working through the techniques and projects explained would give the artist a wonderful portfolio of ideas. A great book: I would suggest it as an ideal present for anyone interested in the innovative use of either paper or metal with fabrics.

teach an old dog to stitch! 18 Jan 2006
By Mixed-Media Maven - Published on
Format: Paperback
i really thought that despite the beautiful cover and the name Maggie Grey, as she is quite the name when fabric is around, this book would be eye candy but not inspiring for me to "work on".

oh boy was i wrong! Ms. Grey's techniques for changing paper to metal and metal to stitch is quite fun! i thoroughly enjoyed just savoring every page the first time around and then i started actually playing. this is a terrific book for inspiration, teaching, learning, doing, and of course, her handiwork is quite the eye candy. i will have this book on my shelves for many years to come.

An Absolute Delight! 9 Nov 2005
By Victoria Bloomfield - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a huge library, but this book is my treasure. I only wish the book was available when I was taking my BFA classes. What a help it would have been to get my creative juices going. I love mixed media and this book is without doubt, the best!

Great eye candy and techniques for paper artists 24 Mar 2007
By Belinda Spiwak - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful raw art book. It has some great textures in it with instructions. It is truly a mixed-media book. There are sections on fabric, paper, metal, and how to combine techniques. There are some techniques in there that I have never tried. I have and they turned out great. I do a lot of raw art collages. I was able to glean a lot of ideas from this book. The colors and textures are great eye candy. What I liked most about this book was that it showed you what you could do with the technique once you tried it. I think that is something that every art book should do since a lot of us artists are visual learners. I think that newbies can learn from the techniques and see what are some of the possible end pieces. More experienced artists can try different techniques and glean ideas from the picts.

By linda mcnamara - Published on
Format: Paperback
I surely enjoyed this book and read and re-read it upon receiving my copy. the directions, list of sources, and photos were fantastic.

I would recommend this for anyone considering using these techniques in their artwork.
