5.0 out of 5 stars A great mat, 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought mats before including the fitness first roll up mat and it was too thin. I would go for this instead without a doubt much thicker foam, it isnt as long as me (head to toe) but I have used shorter versions of this same mat at the gym. To me its a great length I would buy again, arrived in 2 days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 26 Dec 2013
This review is from: Biografiktion (Paperback)
Till hafenbrak is one of my faves so buying this wasnt a hard decision. I actually got it as a gift (via my wish list) and I was over joyed to receive it. The storyboards are great and also included are plenty of full page prints as well. 50-65% in colour rest is b&w, my only wish would have been for it to be full colour. A Nobrow win once again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrived defective, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My punch arrived from the seller, it is broken/defective and not punching the circle properly.I am Very disappointed with product obviously. It doesnt depress all the way down and only cuts half the circle (on 2 side) so it doesnt cut the whole circle out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book describes well the techniques and materials require for a beginner in the collagraph world. It is a modern approach to the subject with some beautiful examples of works in progress from the author. I would have liked to have seen more techniques illustrated including working with gesso/polyfiller etc and how to build textures in the mediums.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Joanne, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been an avid reader of Joannes blog for a couple of years now. She talks beautifully about the shows she attends on there and kindly shares lots of photos of some wonderfully talented artists, however, I was dissapointed to find that this book was not up to expectations. For example the part on image transfer is 6 lines long and there are no photos/step by step pictures of any methods. A considerable amount of the book is a portfolio of encaustic work, which although is nice (not all to my taste) and gives examples across a range of sculptural as well as collage techniques I found, mostly quite flat (but thats personal preference).
I suppose I was expecting to see some fine examples of how to create textures in encaustic work along with info on using oils with the medium (I cant recall info on layering wax over oil etc) with examples and ideas of tools to use in terms of household and everyday items and collage/monotype methods. I am a printmaker making textural collagraph plates, and was wanting to see some of the methods I saw in Joannes work in her book, however I didnt find anything more than what I already knew (basic technique). Its nice for a beginner perhaps but nothing new for me.
