Irresistible Texture: Using Resists to Create Stunning Cloth
Irresistible Texture: Using Resists to Create Stunning Cloth

Add unique pattern and texture to your cloth with five easy, inexpensive and versatile resists. A resist is a substance applied to the cloth surface that blocks the penetration of dye or paint. Once the resist is washed out, the pattern and texture are revealed.

Lisa Kerpoe demonstrates the use of five resists: oatmeal, potato dextrin, commercial water-based resists, sodium alginate paste and soy wax. Lisa provides complete information about each resist, including benefits, application techniques, tips for applying color and wash-out procedures. The DVD is packed with tips and advice based on Lisa's expertise in working with these resists. See the magic for yourself!

Art Cloth: A Guide to Surface Design for Fabric
Art Cloth: A Guide to Surface Design for Fabric

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 is an exciting sequel that 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 contribute 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.

Finally, each technique 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.
