Description

Create unique and stunning imagery on any exterior with diverse surface design techniques from Courtney Cerutti, author of Playing with Image Transfers and Washi Tape.

Whether you are looking to stamp on fabric, marble paper, etch into wood or clay, or create modern looks with neon and metallic, the projects in this book will provide endless inspiration.

Playing with Surface Design is a practical and modern resource that will teach you the seven techniques of surface design: Paste Paper, Marbling, Monoprinting, Dyeing and Bleaching, Stamping, and Painting and Mark Making. This book highlights methods and contains multiple project per technique so that you can use them across all mediums. You'll learn how to make beautiful items, including gift boxes, albums, sketchbook covers, wall art, accordion books, and much more. Once you've mastered the techniques, you'll also explore multiple surfaces as a base for your designs – wood, fabric, paper, canvas, and book forms. A beautiful gallery will show the use of surface art in a wide variety of high-end artistic works to get your creative juices flowing.
