Lotta Prints: How to Print with Anything, from Potatoes to Linoleum

by

Lotta Prints: How to Print with Anything, from Potatoes to Linoleum Cover

 

Staff Pick

Another charmer from Lotta Jansdotter, Lotta Prints covers all the details you need to start embellishing your surfaces (fabric, paper, walls, etc.) with a variety of craft processes. I'm a big fan of potato printing, as recipients of my Christmas cards will vouch for. The many fans of Jansdotter's Simple Sewing will recognize and welcome her distinctive bold-and-basic Scandinavian style.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stencil leaves on the walls, stamp flowers on wrapping paper, screen-print on a skirt the sky's the limit. Beautiful photographs inspire while step-by-step instructions and illustrations explain the basics.

Plus, Lotta has included eight ready-to-use stencil pages with hand-drawn patterns, so crafters can easily achieve her signature style. Our innovative format, with perforated stencil sheets and a catchall envelope at back, makes this a fantastic resource for any aspiring printer.

Synopsis:

Scandinavian designer Jansdotter shows how easy it is to print patterns on all sorts of surfaces. Using stencils, rubber stamps, homemade screens, and other easy techniques, the projects range from simple prints easy for beginners to more involved projects for experienced artists.
