Video: Embellishing with Paint Sticks
Video Length: 6:43
Produced by: Gary Junken
with Laura Murray
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.
