Screen Printing Layering Textiles with Colour Texture & Imagery
Just one silk screen can take you anywhere you want to go. The screen is a remarkably versatile tool in the hands of an enquiring mind. Endless possibilities exist to generate specific imagery in the form of line, shape and texture, along with marvellously organic, fun and spontaneous results. This book demystifies the process and provides over 25 ways of getting a design on to the screen - 23 of them temporary.
'Screen Printing' is a user-friendly, inspirational and 'how to' book. The 80 pages contain clear step-by-step instructions accompanied by over 100 gorgeous, instructional photographs. Recipes for different media such as thickened dyes and discharge paste are included along with guidance on fabric paints, acrylics and colour mixing. Finally, the 'Projects' section will enable new users to understand the versatility of a single design and kick start them on their journey into layering textiles.
