Textile artists will find this unique guide a superbly practical and inspirational introduction to a truly “hot” topic!
With detailed instructions, beautiful photography, and health and safety advice, Hot Textiles explores how such equipment as soldering irons, heat guns, and even household irons can add astonishing levels of texture and variety to all types of fabrics. Renowned textile artist and teacher Kim Thittichai covers a stunning selection of techniques: hot and cold foiling, painted and plain Bondaweb (fusible webbing), bead making from synthetics, three-dimensional work, embossing powders, and so much more. With ideas for melting and distorting plastic bags and cellophane and for using a combination of tools and fabrics to create layers, this is an important book that every textile artist will want.
