NEW!!! Deconstructed Screen Printing DVD
by Kerr Grabowski
You are going to love this DVD! Artist Kerr Grabowski gives very clear instructions, while showing you how to create organic images with the silk screen, through the use of found objects and thickened MX dye. Once the screen is dry, you then print with print paste to release and breakdown the thickened dye. Each pass with the squeegee releases more and more of the dye, and no two consecutive images/patterns will ever be alike. This exciting process of deconstructed screen printing can be done on both fabric and paper! The DVD also has an inspiring section of student work and a Gallery of artists using this process in their own work. There are 2 DVDs, with a runtime of approximately 3½ hours. DSPDVD - $39.95

Then learn how to embellish your fabric with foiling, embroidery, beadwork, or collage.
Recipes for dyes and techniques covered in the book are accompanied by step-by-step instructions and process photographs, making them clear and easy to follow.
The hardback format with concealed spiral binding makes The Surface Designer’s Handbook easy to use.
