Images on Fabric
These last few months I’ve been totally absorbed with printing on fabric, particularly using digital grounds. You can see some of my art bags here and journal covers here. So I was interested when I came across this book as I was browsing through the bookstore the other week – Image Transfer Workshop: Mixed-Media Techniques for Successful Transfers by Darlene Olivia McElry & Sandra Duran Wilson.
The book details step-by-step, 35 different methods of transferring images; most of them using an inkjet printer, and some of them using a laser printer and if you enjoy working with mixed media applications, then you’ll really enjoy this book. The instructions are very clear and large pictures help you to see how the process is done. Mixed media seems to be all the rage right now but I only found a couple of techniques in the book that were suitable for transferring images to fabric and they were quite basic, so for those of us who work strictly with fabric most of the techniques in the book, although interesting, simply don’t apply.
