Sensational sewing projects demand fabulous fabrics! Fiber artist Cheryl Rezendes shows you how to create an astonishing array of surface designs, simply and safely, using textile paints and printing ink. She covers a wide variety of techniques: stamping, ancient Japanese Shibori, silkscreen, soy wax and flour resist, image transfer, marbling, nature printing, foils and metal leaf, and more. Step-by-step photographs illustrate every technique, and Rezendes includes innovative suggestions on how to combine and layer techniques for stunningly original results.
Organized in three parts, the book opens with basics and advice about work surfaces, tools and supplies, and more. The second part is all about the techniques. It is brilliantly indexed with color-coded chapters so readers can quickly reference whatever information they’re looking for. Within each chapter, Cheryl provides information and details on myriad processes. Interspersed are mini profiles of surface design artists. The third part, A Designer’s Notebook, offers advice on recordkeeping, color theory, and composition.
This book works in two ways: as a reference manual, readers can flip to any chapter to focus on a particular technique or, as a lesson plan, starting from the beginning, readers can gain a full understanding about surface design. Beginners and experienced surface designers will find this book a great addition to their libraries.” — Quilting Arts
