Publisher Comments:

Sensational sewing projects demand fabulous fabrics! Fiber artist Cheryl Rezendes shows you how to create an astonishing array of surface designs, simply and safely, using textile paints and printing ink. She covers a wide variety of techniques: stamping, ancient Japanese Shibori, silkscreen, soy wax and flour resist, image transfer, marbling, nature printing, foils and metal leaf, and more. Step-by-step photos illustrate every technique, and Rezendes shows you lots of innovative ways to combine and layer techniques for stunning results.

Review:

"Rezendes's handbook of techniques for making fabric one-of-a-kind is for crafters of all skill levels. Novices will see this and be grateful. Those who have just dipped paint to fabric will be bolstered by the assistance. And experienced fabric designers will have some 'ah ha' moments as they build upon their knowledge of painting, stamping, resists, image transfer, marbling, batik, and so much more. Fiber artist Rezendes helps amateurs become pros, inviting different entries to the book: zero in on a subject or shop around the book's pages, which cover everything from such basics as brushes and other supplies to advanced technical skills such as reverse photo imaging. Not to fear — the latter can be done in a darkened closet. The journey begins with the Song Dynasty in China and ends on the contemporary kitchen work surface, employing techniques and materials from Elmer's School Glue and soy wax to house paint and photo emulsion. This is a good source for crafters wanting to extend their design skills beyond basic quilting, and the experienced who have not yet dabbled in this vast variety of techniques."

This is an excellent reference book for artists and crafters. Great chapter on nature printing, lots of information in the screen printing chapter. As an artist that likes to work in textile as well as on paper it gives me a lot of different techniques to use in my art as well as on fabric for quilts or clothing. Very detailed instructions for the processes and bonus pages of how to "explore the possibilities".

This is a wonderful book for anyone that wants to try their hand at a wide variety of surface design possibilities. You do not need a degree in art or a huge budget to use these ideas. And the results are amazing!
