Ray Slater, “Cloth Dolls for Textile Artists”
Interweave Press | 2008 | ISBN: 1596680873 | English | 128 pages | File kind: PDF | 36.40 mb
Presenting the fundamental principles and techniques of doll making, this book supplies patterns for distinct shapes of dolls—from the easy stump doll to the far more complex joint doll—as well as practical instruction on needle-sculpting expressive faces using needle and thread embroidery. A wide range of textile techniques fill these pages, as step-by-step directions take artists via techniques of beading, hand and machine embroidering, stamping, dyeing, felting, and quilting. An exciting alternative, the cloth doll represents the ideal medium for textile artists to express their skill and creativity.
