Addition To My Art Library

"This timely project guide concentrates on 2 of the key materials being newly incorporated into textiles & fiber arts today — paper & metal. Both media are covered in separate sections that describe the unique properties of each, as well as textural methods, adding color, & embellishing with stitches. Paper can be molded, formed, cut, torn, embossed, & stitched; metal adds a new gleam; & additional dimensions of the material are explored with soft sheet metals, meshes, wires, & coils. Concepts build through each section, starting with elemental embroidery & basic, texture-building steps, & moving to exciting finishing ideas for combining & mixing techniques for original & innovative results."
