Overview


Mixing the versatility of paper with the dimensional qualities of cloth, this inventive handbook to crafting with “paper-cloth” provides mixed-media artists with the knowledge to easily transform their works into collaged quilts using embellishment techniques, such as painting, stitching, needlefelting, and beading. Though the technique is inexpensive and requires less space, equipment, and skill than dyeing fabrics for quilt making, readers will learn step-by-step how the use of paper-cloth—from making the paper-cloth itself; adding color and interest to the foundation with inks, stains, paints, and glazes; texturizing; implementing printmaking techniques; and more—can allow layers of complexity and textural appeal. Common projects include art quilts, art dolls, jewelry, and artist books. Perfect for artists interested in altered art, found and recycled art, needle felting, and nontraditional elements, this original resource is the first to cross the paper and cloth mediums.

    Perfect for fabric and paper artists

    As a mixed media artist and one who loves both fabric and paper, I was anxious to get this book and learn more about making fabric paper. I had originally seen the technique in Quliting Arts Magazine and had tried it. Loved it and wanted more info and in depth instruction. This book leads you thru the making of fabric paper and the hundreds of ways to color and decorate it. Once you've made it, you're lead thru projects using the fabric paper. A very enjoyable and inspiring book. A definite keeper for the craft library.

    Inspiring

    Full of techniques and detailed supply lists. Detailed step my step instructions with large, full color photographs. This book is also very inspiring to flip through when I'm stuck on color choices or lacking the motivation to start a project.
