Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A candle, a light bulb, or natural daylight illuminating a translucent sheet of paper can create surprises by casting a shadow through holes onto another surface, illuminating a subtle pattern in the paper, or showing off a batiked design. As the popularity of handmade paper grows, this unique book takes the paper crafter beyond stationery, cards, and journals to innovative designs for using colored and textured paper to make striking three-dimensional home furnishings: luminaria, lanterns, room divider screens, sconces, lampshades, nightlights, window shades, and more.

This book includes inspiring full-color photographs of the projects, as well as the works of a variety of talented paper artists. Line drawings illustrate the step-by-step instructions. Paper decorative techniques include piercing, layering, collage, crayon batiking, fold and dye, marbling, nature printing, rubber stamping, stenciling, embossing, and weaving. Also included is easy-to-understand information on lamp basics and safety, wiring and rewiring lamps, and creating interesting lamp bases.

Synopsis:

This unique book takes the paper crafter beyond stationery, cards, and handmade books to innovative designs using handmade paper to create illuminated home furnishings.

Explore the many ways that you can use paper and light together. Natural light, candlelight, and even the harsh glare of electric bulbs are enhanced when filtered through beautiful handmade papers. Rekindle that old paper flame and make illuminated paper part of your everyday dTcor.

Synopsis:

Paper and light combine the functional with the decorative. Paper diffuses the harshness of light, giving it a warm, soft glow. In return, light enhances paper, displaying delicate and subtle textures, colors, designs, and variations in opacity.

Paper Illuminated shows you how to use handmade paper in innovative designs for three-dimensional home furnishings, including luminaria, lanterns, room divider screens, sconces, lampshades, night-lights, and window treatments. You'll learn techniques to make paper more translucent and interesting, such as piercing, layering, collaging, crayon batiking, marbling, nature printing, rubber-stamping, stenciling, embossing, weaving, and more. Full -color photographs throughout the book also showcase the unique works of a variety of talented paper artists.
