Oh My Goodness! I have gotten a bit behind here, what with a lot of travel the last three months. Coupeville. Iceland. Vancouver. Reno. NYC. More on that later–because there’s news about our book! We have a title! We have a cover! And, we have a pre-order sale!
Playful Fabric Printing, by Carol Soderlund and Melanie Testa, delves into printing on cloth with artist-made tools and thickened fiber-reactive dyes.
For the beginning printmaker or the more experienced artist, we cover
- the use of motif in print design
- layering motifs for multi-colored prints
- approachable artist-made tools as well as found object printing
- cohesive color palette mixed from three primary colors of dye
Moreover, we share how all processes can be done without a large studio and printing equipment—a card table worth of space is sufficient!

I am so happy to send this effort out into the world. I am looking forward to seeing what you make of it, and from it!
