Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Use spunbonded fabrics to create stunning effects that cannot be achieved with any other manmade or natural fibres. Covers a range of exciting fabrics, from Tyvek to Lutradur, plus new fabrics such as Evolon and heat-distressable tissue. Fabrics can be washed, dyed, painted, printed, stitched, burned, fused, foiled, stencilled and slashed to create beautiful and innovative effects. Lutradur and Evolon belong to a category of manmade fabrics called spunbonded textiles. They have been available for a few years, but the explosion of their use in the textile world is very recent. They are spunbound, non-woven polyesters, which are very strong and flexible, but soft to the touch and ideal for textile art.</p> <p>All the different types of spunbonded textiles are covered including Lutradur, Evolon, heat-distressable tissue and some older textiles in this category, such as Tyvek, nappy (diaper) liner and kunin felt. The author introduces a range of simple colouring techniques, from painting and printing to dyeing. The book then guides you through heat-distressing, fusing and soldering techniques for which these spunbonded textiles are perfect. The other popular technique - image transfer - is also made simple with these manmade fabrics. Other techniques explained, step-by-step, include foiling and stamping.</p> An essential book for all textile artists who want new and exciting ideas on how to use these versatile textiles.</p>
