A great little guide to this interesting craft
on 5 July 2011
A friend introduced me to this craft - the art of transfering an impression of real flowers and leaves onto fabric. The technique is straightforward and the equipment needed is basic - a hammer, masking tape and suitable material such as cotton will get you started. This book explains exactly what to do by using simple instructions and photographs. It also gives plenty of tips and tricks of the trade. I have tried it out and found it to be great fun, although it takes quite a lot of patience and practice. The book also explains the technique of "flower trapping" - capturing a real flower between sheets of material. This book is ideal for beginners, and I particularly liked the photos of different projects and finished pieces. It has given me a lot of ideas.
