Fabric Painting, Dyeing & Surface Decoration Books - "Cyanotypes on Fabric" by Ruth Brown
Cyanotyping is a simple process for producing subtle, detailed images on fabric - Prussian blue and white - calm, cool, classical and utterly beautiful. Mix this technique from the 1840's with natural leaves and flowers or with modern digital negatives and, perhaps, with some textile techniques, and you have a wide range of image making possibilities.
The book has 96 pages, all in full colour, and includes chapters on:
Preparing the fabric (smooth, textured and restricted area backgrounds. Making the prints, including photograms, digital negatives, manipulating the fabric and "Putting it all together". Exposing the prints. Processing. "So you don't want blue" - toning, underdyeing, overdyeing and painting. Health & Safety. Bibliography.
The book has been fully revised in 2016.
