Description

Nothing fancy required! On this DVD, textile artist Leslie Tucker Jenison demonstrates how to create unique patterns and marks on cloth and paper using a variety of post-consumer objects. Demonstrations include the preparation of thickened dyes, screen printing (using everyday items to create resists); batching; and the lamination of paper to cloth (as a method for image transfer).

And there’s much more! Leslie also shows how to use three unique surface design techniques—soy wax printing, gelatin monoprinting, and stamping—to make marks on fabric. To clearly illustrate the variety of results one can achieve, Leslie demonstrates each technique using the same group of household objects throughout. For an in-depth lesson on surface-design techniques for fabric and paper, check out this jam-packed DVD!
