Making your Mark
Creating cloth for imagery, stitch, embroidery & embellishment This latest book from Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan explores the magic of using 'everyday' tools such as scrapers, rollers, squeeze bottles etc. to create individual, personal marks on cloth or paper.
Using the approaches described in this book will enable people to create very personal work; perfect backgrounds for additional imagery, stitch or embroidery - or ready to use for collage or piecing, or for garment and interiors yardage. The 52 pages contain clear step-by-step instructions in Plain English, accompanied by over 100 instructional and inspiring colour images. Recipes for different media such as thickened dyes and discharge paste are included along with guidance on fabric paints and the use of resists. Leslie and Claire also cover how to change the value and consistency of the different media to suit the tool being used. The bonus DVD provides 2 hours of 'show and tell' on using different tools
