Unleash your inner artist and join Traci Bautista as she shares inventive ideas for making marks with handmade tools, nontraditional materials and simple DIY printmaking techniques. Pulsing with exploration and whimsy, Printmaking Unleashed features 60+ step-by-step demonstrations and countless possibilities for creating original prints, fabrics, art journal pages, mixed-media collage, and so much more.


Tools Galore! Create a variety of handmade mark-making tools and texture plates using everything from encaustic paints, Collage Pauge and chipboard letters to modeling compound, needlepoint canvas and recycled cardboard. Mix-and-Match Techniques! Discover digital and traditional techniques for producing one-of-a-kind monoprints. Start with the basics, then build up layer after luscious layer of color and texture. Pure inspiration! Every page offers new ideas, original artwork and creative jumpstarts. Flip through the pages and learn how anything with interesting texture or shape (rubber bands, vintage lace, the bottom of a bottle) can be incorporated into printmaking for exciting, unique effects. You will never look at a toothpick, freezer bag or plastic zip tie in the same way again!

This book promises more than 50 techniques and it more than delivers! The author's creativity and ability to see the potential in materials is matched by the clear directions and the color photos that detail her processes. I can't wait to try her recommendations for making stencils and will be joyfully repurposing some materials that into colorful creations using her advice and techniques. I can't believe I didn't know about the material called Collage Pauge until reading this book!
