This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Surface Design for Fabric provides an introduction to a fascinating and varied field of design; the hand application of design to the surface of fabric. Explained here are virtually all of the hand processes used to embellish or alter fabric surfaces. These include direct dyeing, liquid resists, bound resists, direct printing, stencil printing, and needlework.
The authors, noted fabric designers and teachers themselves, have organized the book in such a way that it can easily be used by beginners. The presentation is primarily visual, with clear, step-by-step illustrations of each process accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions. At the end of each chapter are photographs of ethnic and contemporary designs that demonstrate the variety of possible effects. This new edition also contains vital information on the safe use of dyes, pigments, and chemical assistants.
