a sensational sewing or quilting project demands fabulous fabrics. Many crafters desire one-of-a-kind fabrics but are intimidated by the idea of working with messy, chemicalladen dyes. Now, the inspired fabric artist can eschew dyes altogether; textile paints can do almost anything dyes can, with little fuss, clean-up, or safety concerns. Cheryl Rezendes demonstrates all the possibilities in Fabric Surface Design. She shows readers how to create an astonishing array of surface designs, simply and safely, using textile paints and printing ink. While most other books on the topic focus on a single technique, this one covers it all: stamping, ancient Japanese Shibori, silkscreen, soy wax and flour resist, image transfer, marbling, nature printing, foils and metal leaf, and more. Step-by-step photographs illustrate every process, with a special emphasis on innovative ways to combine and layer techniques for the most stunning results. Accessible to the general enthusiast, with dazzling design that will inspire even seasoned fiber artists, Fabric Surface Design will appeal to all fabric lovers.
