Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Yes, there are other books dealing with the art of applying different techniques to surfaces, covering painting, embossing, stenciling, and stamping. Not only does California artist Scrivano combine these four most popular methods but she also employs them easily, almost painlessly, on different home and wearable items. The idea is to give readers some basics of each technique, a few critical tips, and then showcase a bunch of decorated articles. In stenciling, for instance, she advocates using paper doilies or reversing the actual patterns for stencils, followed by a dragonfly suede table, among other ideas. All instructions are geared to beginners; the more than 45 patterns are intended as concepts, not actual patterns. Do it yourself starts right here. Barbara Jacobs

The book is well written and has great illustrations and especially good information on products for the beginner. It really shows how much fun textile surface design can be however I must stress that if you have done much work with surface design at all, this book will not be very challenging. It is a great book for beginners!.
