Printing by Hand - A Modern Guide to Printing with Handmade Stamps, Stencils and Silk Screens - Lena Corwin
This product is currently sold out.
Even though decorative prints are more in vogue than ever, there was until now no up-to-date hand-printing guide―no single source explaining the tools and materials that are used today, or reflecting a contemporary aesthetic. Corwin has given us that guide.
Using step-by-step instructions and up-close photos, Corwin teaches crafters everything they need to know to master stamping, stenciling, and screen printing, from making their own printing devices to trouble-shooting when plans go awry. Her inimitable collection of projects ranges from stamped stationery and simple-to-sew pouches, to stenciled tote bags and furniture, to screen-printed bed linens and upholstery fabric. There’s even a silk-screened dog bed. The author has created original artwork for each project (full-size patterns are included in an envelope at the back of the book), so that every crafter can achieve the same beautiful results. Or maybe not quite the same. Remember: It’s the subtle differences that make hand-printing so special and alluring.
