Product Description

This new book by artists/authors Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan, together otherwise known as "Committed to Cloth", explores the process of Breakdown Printing.

In their own words: "Breakdown printing involves applying thick dye paints or print paste directly on to the back of the screen. This is left to dry and then printed off with more dye paint or print paste, or a combination thereof. This print 'media' (the dye) is gradually dissolving the dried-on dye on the screen – it's breaking down and printing an ever-changing array of colours, marks, textures and distressed, organic and disintegrating effects."

This book is a beautifully illustrated manual on the whole process of breakdown printing. From the preparation of screens and fabrics to the use of multiple screens in the same piece, Breakdown Printing will provide you with all the skills needed to begin exploring this incredible design technique.

The new bonus DVD provides 80 minutes of demonstrations from Claire and Leslie, including how to make Chemical Water, Print Paste and thickened dye paint. The combination of the book plus DVD mean that this process is accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience level!
