The new and easy-to-download Art Cloth eBook is a comprehensive guide to creating rich texture, color, and pattern with art cloth using surface design products and a wealth of technique combinations.

When Jane Dunnewold's book Complex Cloth was published in 1996, it quickly became the bible of surface design for fiber artists. In the years since, the world of surface design has significantly expanded: now fiber artists, art-to-wear designers, and art quilters have a much broader range of surface design products to choose from, and there are a wealth of technique combinations that can be used to create art cloth.

Art Cloth picks up where Complex Cloth left off, showing how to layer processes with the latest products to create stunning cloth for use in a variety of fiber art. Following Jane's techniques with step-by-step photography, you will learn to create art cloth using dyes, color removing agents, paints, and foils combined through processes that include silk-screen printing, stamping, stenciling, and handpainting.

In addition to detailed step-by-step wet-media surface design techniques, Jane demonstrates how the use of color and design contributes to successful layering. She guides and inspires artists to take their art cloth to the next level through sidebars with design tips and exercises that support the technical information. Each techniques chapter concludes with project ideas for the skills learned, so anyone working through the book can literally build layers on cloth as each chapter is completed.

Good reference book
This is a reference book for those new to surface design. Jane is very knowledgeable in her field, and always worth a read even for those of us familiar with most of the techniques covered. As a reference book however, I'd buy the hard copy rather than an eBook. Review by Mary Jean (Posted on 7/14/2014)
a must for your library!
Excellent book that very clearly and methodically lays out the basics for creating art cloth. There is nothing earth-shatteringly new in here, but its all together, in the one place, and the author logically progresses from one technique to another. Jane Dunnewald's explanantions for the why it could be better to do it this way, or why one product has advantages over than another are detailed enough without being wordy, and very simple to understand if, like me, you are jargon-challenged! There are no projects to follow - this is a reference book par excellence, one you will keep close by to refer to when trying out a new technique, or troubleshooting something that may have worked in the past. I would recommend having it close by when trying new techniques from other books, as this will give you the basis from which to judge the success of what you are doing, and whether what you are about to do may have unforseen results. I wish I had bought it sooner; it could have helped me overcome more than a few oopsies, lol! Review by Caroline Alexander (Posted on 10/29/2011)
