Publisher Comments:

""Lavishly illustrated.Clear, easy-to-follow directions."--Library Journal.""you can decorate an impressive-looking floorcloth easily and inexpensively. The Complete Book of Floorcloths shows you how."--Woman's Day Two dozen different methods for creating and embellishing a design; eight projects ranging from geometric patterns to freeform squiggles; 63 artists showing off a glorious range of contemporary work: and dozens of luscious pictures: in short, it's the home decorator's dream guide to making the perfect floorcloth! If you're concerned that you'll need the painting skills of a da Vinci to complete your floor covering, don't worry! Many of these techniques--like sponging, squeeze-bottle painting, photo transfer, rubber stamping, and collage--are just right for the untrained. A special chapter goes step-by-step through the entire process, from priming the canvas, applying the background color, and sewing the hem to drawing the design, applying sealant, and adding a non-skid rubber backing. And, what a variety of styles you'll have to choose from: a lush forest floor pattern that will make you feel you're walking on leaves; luscious veggies and fruit on a checked border; a lifelike carp pond; a classic art-deco peacock; a sunny rug with children's art, and more!

Synopsis:

Not in the mood to hook a rug or weave a carpet? Try painting one of these delightful, colorful, long-wearing canvas floorcloths--a practical, inexpensive floor covering all the rage in early America and increasingly popular today.
