5.0 out of 5 stars Great digital artist reference for transfer and alternative printing, January 3, 2011
This review is from: Digital Alchemy: Printmaking techniques for fine art, photography, and mixed media (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
Bonny Lhotka's innovative and groundbreaking artwork has been my main inspiration and reference, so I have been awaiting this book, and found it as instructive as I hoped. I have purchased all her instructional videos, and they are valuable for seeing her techniques in action. This book is a great accompaniment to that or as a stand alone reference.
If you are a digital artist or photographer who is interested in displaying your images on something other than paper (or a computer monitor), this is the place to learn how. She gives recipes and techniques for transferring images (or printing directly) onto metal, wood, fabric and other surfaces. These are well illustrated with both images of the techniques and images of her final artwork.
Her previous book (co-author), "Digital Art Studio" I found to be inspirational, but not as helpful. "Digital Alchemy" is better organized and more useful. This book does assume a background in digital art/photography, and is geared more toward an artist than someone interested in trying a new craft project. The other forewarning is that a lot of these techniques work only or best with some products that she sells through her online store. I have not found that to be a problem though because she has created and developed these products and they work beautifully.
