Book Review: Visual Texture on Fabric

Here is an advanced reading copy of Lisa Kerpoe's new book sitting on MY cutting table.  I can't tell you how excited I am!  The book is coming out in June 2012 and I think it is a must have.

I have been following Lisa's blog forever and have often referred to her posts on my Friday Favorites.  Now all her recipes and processes are in one place.  Before I got all excited and told you that the book is a must-have, I checked Jane Dunnewold's books, Complex Cloth and Art Cloth. Those are kinda the gold standard of all things surface design for me.  Jane's books barely cover water-based resists so Lisa's book is a wonderful addition to them.  Lisa's book is not an entire dictionary of surface design techniques  like Jane's are but it does not pretend to be.  It is a book all about resists--recipes, how to apply them, how to apply color after the resists, how to remove the resists when you are done, a troubleshooting guide, and resources for the supplies. Resists from the beginning to the end.

Guess what I'll be doing during my Christmas break? Resistance (to the resist) is futile.   LOL


  1. Wow, Judith, you must be special! I don't even have an advance copy. Thanks for the review. I put a lot of work into the book and am pleased with the results. Have fun with your resist experiments - I can't wait to see photos!

  2. I am very excited about this new book of resources...I will keep my eyes out for the release. Thank you sweet friend! Merry Christmas ! Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
