Overview

From one of the UK’s leading textile artists and author of Colour on Cloth and Glorious Papers comes a glorious celebration of the limitless potential of printing and repeat patterns on fabric. Aimed at fiber artists and designers, it is packed with imaginative techniques for a wide range of print methods and media. Mono-printing using sponges, rollers, and textured surfaces; screen-printing, including the use of photo-sensitive screens; using thickened dyes; developing ideas on paper; combining print with stitch and fabric manipulation; and incorporating metallic and pearlescent paints: it’s all here, with gorgeous color photographs to illustrate every idea.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This is a lusciously illustrated volume by a highly accomplished fabric and paper artist, teacher, and author. Issett (Colour on Cloth) covers simple and sophisticated techniques, from monoprinting and roller printing to screen printing, printing with found objects, stencils, and rubbed and dyed effects. Key equipment, paints, and dyes are explained, as well as the best printing techniques for specific fabrics and papers. This is a good volume for fine artists, embroiderers, quilt makers, fashion designers, or furniture makers. For a full background on this tradition, see John Gillow and Bryan Sentance's World Textiles: A Visual Guide to Traditional Techniques.
