Twelve easy-to-follow projects plus tutorials on creating with found objects, designing your own custom plates for relief printmaking, transferring images, painting stencils, more. Most projects employ common household items.



Book Synopsis



Before the digital age, printing was a handcraft -- and it still is! This guide presents 12 easy-to-follow projects that demonstrate time-honored techniques for decorating gift bags and coasters, transferring images to mugs and t-shirts, and embellishing other items. Suitable for crafters at all levels of ability and of all ages, the projects employ common household items such as cardboard tubes, cork, and rubber erasers.
More than 100 photographs accompany complete directions for the easy and accessible process of relief printing: creating a stencil, inking it up, applying the stencil to the item, and then repeating. An introduction to tools, materials, and equipment is followed by chapters on making your own toolbox, creating art with found and natural objects, printing with your own custom stamps and plates, screen printing and photographic techniques, and more. Each project features helpful tips for turning out a high-quality product and suggestions for adding personal touches.
