- Excellent instruction and infinite inspiration Review by Debra
Kerr is an excellent teacher both in person and on her DVDs, and this one is no exception. It is clear, concise, and chock-full of techniques. If you have any desire to add color to your fabric, this DVD will inspire you. The only thing I would have added was a more extensive gallery. If you have both of Kerr's DVDs you have enough instruction for infinite inspiration to create painterly work on fabric.

- It's like this technique has been waiting for me my whole life! Review by Stella Belikiewicz
When I first watched this video, it was like an entire world of mark making on fabric that I had been waiting for all my life was suddenly was available to me. The techniques that Ms. Grabowski shares in this video are unbelievably easy, fun and fast, and allow you to make extremely beautiful, unplanned images on fabric with all sorts of unexpected media normally restricted to the world of paper, and then make them PERMANENT. I was so excited about these techniques, and also very worried that they wouldn't work as well as I hoped, that I put off trying them for two weeks, as if there were a wonderful magic spell I might break, but now I've tried drawing on fabric with a variety of media, and the silkscreen-based techniques covered in this video work with all of them. Also, Kerr Grabowski is an extremely engaging, thorough and positive teacher and I really enjoyed hearing her positive approach!

- What a blast! Review by Eva Mari Kirkvaag Bj
I have purchased several videoes and books, read up a lot on different printing techniques online etc - but this one bought yesterday is by far my new favourite source of inspiration and pure creative joy! She has the perfect mix of know how and laidback, teaching and enthusing. If you are going to buy one testdrive download for mixed media this is it. If you are someone who has always drawn and painted etc your house is probably filled with materials already as is mine. I have ordered the GAC 900 from Artifolk and cannot wait to try all this out! Now I only wish there was a downloadable version of the deconstructed of hers... *Hint, hint*

- Review by a sundaram
Very informative and inspiring. Kerr Grabowski goes through ways to apply a variety of watersoluble and dry media onto cloth both directly and through a screen. She must do a lot of experimenting and shares the results of her experiments, including tips on what not to do and why not. Apart from the colorants (textile acrylic, Neocolor II, etc.) many of her texturizing materials are everyday objects like cardboard cutout stencils, newspaper, and lace from a garage sale. Offers good tips on making and preserving your screen. I really enjoyed it and feel eager to try the various methods myself.

- Excellent program, definitely worth the time and money Review by Todd Peckham
I had never heard of Kerr Grabowski before, but what a wonderful introductory program. Gives enough details to be able to explore the design techniques demonstrated without being so overwhelming as to scare one off. I love this program
