Taking An Artistic Path Through NatureBook - 2002
In this innovative book, author and crafter Carolyn Dahl demonstrates how printing with a natural material--covering it with a medium and pressing it to a surface--allows artists to see and appreciate exquisite, often-overlooked details and make physical contact with the earth that sustains us. Natural Impressions begins with practical guidance on collecting materials and objects, along with basic instructions for making a successful nature print. Divided into three sections--leaves, flowers, and fish--the book clearly demonstrates a variety of techniques using an array of mediums; for example, paints/pigments, bleach, collage, markers, textile paints, and even rubber stamps. Plus, a special section details how nature prints can meet today s technology with photocopying and computer manipulation.
