Packed with accessible but imaginative techniques, it covers: monoprinting using sponges, rollers and textured surfaces; blocks and stencils, both commercially bought and homemade; screenprinting, including the use of photo-sensitive screens; using interesting media such as Markal paint sticks, thickened dyes, metallic and pearlescent paints and discharge paste; developing print ideas on paper before taking them to fabric; and, combining print with stitch and fabric manipulation. Beautifully illustrated with sumptuous photographs that show off the author's infectious love of colour, this book contains a wealth of inspiration for using print in embroidery and textiles."@en ;
