Overview

With these 150 fabulous designs, T-shirts change from plain into one-of-a-kind wearable art. The creative and fun techniques will attract both adults and children, and they range from painting and embellishing (with great new info on using everything from beads to appliqués) to stamping and printing. The tie-dye patterns include pretty shibori projects, and there’s colorful batik, marbling, and screen printing. Or, for a fun new alternative, try image transfers. All the materials are easy to find and to use, and a basics section for each technique explains all the materials and how-tos, complete with detailed illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The plain T-shirt, that universal garment for young and old, is now a stock item in craft stores. Of course, plain T-shirts are uninteresting, so they are painted, tie-dyed, batiked, and otherwise embellished. Finished shirts by many designers are presented here, along with basic instructions in technique, but there are no projects with patterns. Most of the material in this book is found in two previous Lark publications: Carol Taylor's The Great T-Shirt Book and Deborah Morgenthal's The Ultimate T-Shirt Book. Public libraries with either probably will not need this; otherwise, a good choice for crafts collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
