With their splendid array of colors, textures, and patterns, collages have an alluring beauty unlike any other art form. In this book, one of the most outstanding collagists working today offers an indispensable guidebook to the vast assortment of tools and techniques that are available.
Grounds and supports, paper layering, faux-lace embellishing, assemblage (which incorporates found objects for a three-dimensional effect), and more are all addressed in this book.
Readers learn how to create impression lifts that duplicate an original picture yet resemble a transparent stained glass window. Rubber stamps, using either dry pigment or heat embossing, are also addressed, as well as techniques that use products like webbing spray, mica tiles, crackling medium, and crystal gel.
This volume is lushly illustrated with the author’s masterpieces and an artists’ gallery.
