Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rezendes’s handbook of techniques for making fabric one-of-a-kind is for crafters of all skill levels. Novices will see this and be grateful. Those who have just dipped paint to fabric will be bolstered by the assistance. And experienced fabric designers will have some “ah ha” moments as they build upon their knowledge of painting, stamping, resists, image transfer, marbling, batik, and so much more. Fiber artist Rezendes helps amateurs become pros, inviting different entries to the book: zero in on a subject or shop around the book’s pages, which cover everything from such basics as brushes and other supplies to advanced technical skills such as reverse photo imaging. Not to fear—the latter can be done in a darkened closet. The journey begins with the Song Dynasty in China and ends on the contemporary kitchen work surface, employing techniques and materials from Elmer’s School Glue and soy wax to house paint and photo emulsion. This is a good source for crafters wanting to extend their design skills beyond basic quilting, and the experienced who have not yet dabbled in this vast variety of techniques. (Mar.)
Quilting Arts
“Cheryl Rezendes’ new book is like an encyclopedia of information on surface design techniques. This comprehensive volume covers over 80 techniques in a fun and accessible way.

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

Library Journal
Many sewists, quilters, and other crafters appreciate hand-painted, one-of-a-kind textiles, but few have the equipment (or the space) to work with the dyes required to create them. In this how-to guide, Rezendes explores the use of fabric paints for embellishing silk and cotton fabrics. The book includes information on a variety of techniques, including stamping, stenciling, resist printing, image transfer, tie dyeing, and drawing. In addition to the how-tos and the photographs of her own work, there are also brief interviews with other fabric artists and samples of their work. VERDICT Rezendes's overview is surprisingly in-depth for such a broad array of topics, and artists interested in fabric embellishment will appreciate the less-muss-and-fuss approach of using paints and inks instead of dyes.
