Overview

The latest entry in the Paper Craft Workshop series shows just how easy it can be to express yourself with the popular art form of collage. Most of the elements needed for this technique come from “found” materials such as images from magazines and newspapers, making it a means of expression that is immediately accessible to everyone. The history of collage is explored here before going on to look at the specific techniques involved. Subjects covered include supplies, preparations, stages of design, decorative elements, gluing techniques, using and creating transparencies, and how to protect your finished work. An extensive list of sample projects is also included to get the creative wheels spinning right away.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Collage artists are always looking for ideas going beyond the usual flat paper or mixed-media assemblage. Both of these books emphasize three-dimensional projects in addition to flat items. Browning (Paper Mosaics in an Afternoon) has practical step-by-step projects incorporating jewelry, place mats, and paperweights. Maurer-Mathison (Paper in Three Dimensions) presents projects by many artists that sometimes take a more surreal approach, often transforming found objects into dolls or altered art. She also offers tips for using unusual papers and construction materials. Both books are good sources of ideas and would be useful in collections needing more papercraft material.
