Watch spontaneous designs develop when you try lasagna painting, monoprinting, splash and puddle, and other unique techniques. Burn your silk, rust your cottons, and distress your felt. For each technique, Susan has designed a project that makes the most of your newly crafted fabric. Fuse Angelina fibers into a colorful collage to wrap around plain jars or vases. Send your friends one-of-a-kind fabric postcards made with painted fusible web. Give the dining room cozy ambiance with gossamer silk candle covers and monoprinted placemats. Go to work in style with your brayer-printed lunch bag and a quilted, painted folder briefcase.
