Product Description

Making Your Mark. Creating cloth for imagery, stitch, embroidery & embellishment.

This latest book from Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan of Committed to Cloth (C2C) explores the magic of using "everyday" tools such as scrapers, rollers, squeeze bottles etc. to create individual, personal marks on cloth or paper. It is the seventh title in C2C's practical "how-to" series.

With practice and imagination these tools are capable of producing imagery and marks that come from a very direct sense of the maker's hand. Their simplicity carries power in that no mark made can ever be exactly repeated, which generates work of real energy – and it doesn't look machine-made. Let's face it, the motivation to explore surface design usually comes from a desire to move away from using commercially produced fabric.

Using the approaches described in this book will enable you to create very personal work; perfect backgrounds for additional imagery, stitch or embroidery - or ready to use for collage or piecing, or for garment and interior's yardage.

The 52 pages contain clear step-by-step instructions in plain English, accompanied by over 100 instructional and inspiring colour images. Recipes for different media such as thickened dyes and discharge paste are included along with guidance on fabric paints and the use of resists. Leslie and Claire also cover how to change the value and consistency of the different media to suit the tool being used.

The bonus DVD provides 2 hours of "show and tell" on using different tools - it's the longest DVD to accompany any of the C2C books - a valuable asset as it's just like being on a workshop with Claire & Leslie.

8.75"x11.75", Soft cover, spiral bound, color images, 52 pages. DVD is 120 minutes.

Received as predicted. Really enjoy the Bonus DVD. Would hope that they will produce another DVD more in depth but was a great help in seeing the pages come to life. Thanks Dharma for making this available.
