Video: Embellishing with Paint Sticks

Video Length: 6:43
Produced by: Gary Junken

Minneapolis stencil designer Laura Murray transforms any fabric in minutes by using paint sticks to transfer a surface texture to the cloth. In this video, she demonstrates how the technique we learned as children can be used with more sophisticated materials-such as silk, oil paint, and texture-and an eye for design.

For full instructions, read Laura's article, "Surface Rubbings Transform Fabric," in the February/March 2006 issue of Threads (#123).
