With their splendid array of colors, textures, and patterns, collages have an alluring beauty unlike any other artform. One of today’s most outstanding collagists has produced an indispensable guidebook to the vast assortment of tools and techniques available: grounds and supports for the work, paper layering, faux-lace embellishing, assemblage (which incorporates found objects for a three-dimensional effect), and more. Impression lifts yield an unusual image that duplicates an original picture--but resembles a transparent stained glass window. Rubber stamps, with either dry pigment or heat embossing, work wonderfully too. And look into products like webbing spray, mica tiles, crackling medium, and crystal gel. Lushly illustrated with the author’s masterpieces and an artists’ gallery.
