Learn 'Fabric Surface Design' with Cheryl Rezendes

Enter into the wonderful world of creating your own fabric designs with “Fabric Surface Design” by Cheryl Rezendes, who received her training as a painter at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

In her recently released book, Rezendes shares with readers “more than 80 fabric-printing techniques using fabric crayons and a variety of different textiles paints — easier and cleaner to work with than dyes.”

This hefty, paperback book will help you develop a strong sense of creativity as a designer of your own printed fabrics. Techniques featured in the book include painting, stamping, rubbing, stenciling, silk-screening, resists, image transfer, marbling, crayons and color pencils, batik, nature prints and monotype printing. Although many of the techniques were created by other artists, Rezendes has embellished them with some of her own methods.
