Focusing on a relatively new way of embellishing, decorating, fusing and layering fabrics, this book is the first to take an in-depth look at heat transfer techniques. Some techniques have grown out of other traditional160;techniques, such as flocking, but they have all been developed through extensive experimentation. Techniques covered here include flocking, foiling, photo-transfer, fusing and sublimation printing. Applications include fabric for fashion garments, soft furnishings and fabric wallpaper, swimwear, kites, and photo-transfer on felt textile art.
The book is suitable for a variety of skill levels, and includes affordable domestic options as well as more ambitious and specialist techniques and materials for colleges students and established textile artists.
