Join Beryl Taylor, author of Mixed-Media Explorations, and special guest Pokey Bolton for an up-close look at a variety of mixed-media techniques. Beryl's artwork may appear intimidating, but when you learn her methods you'll discover they're fun and easily mastered–not daunting whatsoever! Learn how to make "fabric paper" with everyday materials, including napkins and candy wrappers, and embellish it to create decorative, layered artwork. Experiment with stenciling using metallic paints and modeling paste on commercially printed and silk fabrics. Learn tricks and tips, such as Beryl's strategy for preparing free-motion motifs in a most-efficient manner, and how to transfer a design using your sewing machine. Finally, who said you can't incorporate metal into your work? Learn to draw on it, color it, punch out shapes, cut it, and then machine stitch it to your fabric. Throughout the DVD, you'll see samples of Beryl's artwork, including additional finished pieces at the end.
