Using mixed media, stitching, and numerous innovative techniques, the projects in this book yield stunning textile art with the accent on shimmer and shine. Step-by-step photographs and clear instructions first show how to make fabric from brown paper or by layering interlining with metal leaf, then go on to demonstrate gilding techniques—using mica, hot fusing adhesives, and metal—various coloring techniques, hand and machine stitching, free-machine embroidery, and unique embellishments. Eleven sumptuous projects, including flat pieces of artwork, necklaces, boxes, and bags, put techniques into practice. Beautiful finished pieces show the intricate, rich, bright, and shiny results of the techniques used in various combinations.
