Fun with Fabric, Paper and Paint
on 31 August 2009
This is a lovely book - full of ideas for creating small works of art using lots of different techniques. Each technique is explained with detailed steps and lavishily illustrated with excellent photos. Here are some examples:
Painting and stamping on fabrics such as muslin, felt, silk, Lutradur, lace and more.
Creating base materials from paper and fabrics.
Creating texture with needle felting, threads and free motion machine embroidery.
Making buttons and beads from paper, felt and silk.
Embossing and etching velvet, Crystalina and Angelina fibres and film.
Using embossing enamels on fabrics.
Heat distressing Tyvek, Lutrador and dryer sheets.
Using fabric dyes, inks and spray paint.
These are just some of the techniques and then there are projects, a gallery and resources.
This book would appeal to papercrafters and quilt artists and anyone enjoying mixed media.
