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.

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!
