"Painting fabric is immensely satisfying and offers a world of creative possibilities. The decorative crafts of painting on silk and batik are easy to master, giving endless scope to transform plain cloth into a vibrant masterpiece. More than any other fabric, silk has always been regarded as a luxurious commodity for its light weight, drape, soft texture and beautiful handling qualities. Silk accepts color readily and is the ideal fabric for batik as well as silk painting. This inspirational book contains 35 stunning projects to make, ranging from clothing such as ties, camisoles, scarves and a sarong, to home furnishings such as cushion covers, wall hangings, screens and even a deckchair..."--P.
