Techniques for Applying Colour to PaperBook - 2001
This book shows you how to use papers to develop design ideas and employ decorated surfaces that will unlock your creativity, develop your skills, and give you the chance to practise colour mixing. The addition of a rich inky stream of pure colour to a paper surface has infinite potential and variety. The paper immediately changes, revealing hidden fibres and qualities, and the results cannot be predicted. This is the challenge of Glorious Papers: the combinations of paper, ink, paint and other media are so varied and infinite that no two papers need ever be the same. There may be similarities, but the next addition of colour or glaze or varnish can totally alter the effect. Lavishly illustrated and clearly written with 'recipe' style projects, this is a book to provide new avenues of creativity whether you are a textile artist, an interior designer, an artist or just want to create beautiful papers.
