Printed Pattern - Printing by Hand from Potato Prints to Silkscreen by Rebecca Drury and Yvonne Drury
A beautiful and practical handbook on how to develop and use patterns and motifs on a wide range of domestic items, ranging from clothing to wallpaper. The book shows how to create and choose ideas and pull themes together. It also teaches how to develop whole 'looks' for interior spaces starting with mood boards or sketchbooks.
There is guidance on colours and selecting your palette as well as developing motifs and patterns and looking at layout and composition ideas. Various surface decoration techniques such as stencils, applique and screenprinting are also discussed. Finally, there are suggestions on how readers can develop and use their own designs and patterns. Techniques for printing onto a range of surfaces are included, from fabric and stationery to furniture, wallpaper and painted surfaces. Screenprinting is used for cushions, curtains, blinds, placemats, table runners, wallpaper and so on. Stencil techniques are described for use on floors, walls, furniture, fabrics and other soft furnishings. And applique and mixed media ideas for decorating wall panels, cushions and general soft furnishings are also given.
All in all, this is an excellent introduction to designing and using your own patterns and motifs in a creative way.
