Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers

What to do with my burgeoning stock of digital photographs has been a nagging source of torment: unworthy of print but too good to ditch, my computer was beginning to protest as yet more fascinating gems were shoe-horned into the collection. And then Digital Fiber Art flopped through the letter box and my dilemma was over!

Wen Redmond, a distinguished quilter and mixed media artist, experiments with manipulating and printing digital images on a multitude of substrates including fabrics and paper. Peppered with images in various stages of completion, this feast of ideas will kick start the imagination of any flagging fibre artist- or hoarder of digital images and textiles!

Wen's passsion for her art shines throughm as she takes the reader through the creative journey from capturing stimulating images and then manipulating them. She covers the type of printer to use and preparation of the substrate, followed by further processing techniques. These include overlaying with guazes and scrims, underpainting and overpainting, medium lifts and the addition of texture using recycled scraps. Showing complete familiarity with the tools, techniques and products she describes Wen's inspirational combination of textiles and digital images will surely motivate the adventurous-spirited reader to compose, create and print innovative textile art too.

Use mixed-media and fabrics to print your images. Inkjet print on a variety of fabrics. This interesting book is mainly concerned with how to print on different fabrics and all that entails. Pre-coats and applying finishes after printing. It's essentially about paint techniques applied to digital images and printed on several substrates. There is a little about manipulating photos but not a lot, you will see examples but essentially this book is for those who have already got to grips with creating digital imagery and want to print it. There is a basic section on editing photos using software and Apps and some basic ideas for backgrounds. The pre-coats, substrates, after effects sections are very good and form the largest part of the book and in my opinion, this is the only reason for buying this book. If you are interested in trying pastes, gels, and so in, this book will be for you. It's very good for experimentation. However, if you are the experimenting kind, you might have tried most of this already. Personally I find my work and printer print as I want without expensive aids, it depends what you are printing on and what printer you are using as well as the ultimate effect and use of your print. There is no doubt that Wen's work is wonderful and that she creates incredible art. Nicely laid out and well-illustrated.
