hardcover from Sterling Publishing (2008) reissued as a paperback from Lark Books (2009)
Techniques and Projects for Handmade Books and Cards
Create and design your own decorative paper to achieve personal and exciting effects. By using a variety of acrylic inks and paints your papers will reflect your interests and mark your individuality. Techniques for multi-layering, using irridescent inks, gesso, and modeling pastes are covered, as well as stenciling, paste papers, collage, and masking. Finally, a selection of book structures, cards, and boxes shows you how to transform your papers into three-dimensional works of art to frame your own images, photographs, or stories. Discussions of brushes, papers, and a color chart with suggestions are included along with colorful, detailed photographs and step-by-step instructions.
This is the only instructional book available that looks at layering permanent acrylic inks in depth, particularly for bookmaking!
