Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 156477256X, Paperback)

If you've ever admired the intricate marbled patterns on the endpapers of old books, you may be surprised at how readily this look adapts to fabric. With a relatively small investment in materials and a good dose of patience, anyone can learn the secrets of creating elaborate marbling on silk, cotton, rayon, polyester, sheers, even ultra suede and tissue lamé. Filled with good instructions and helpful color photos, this guide explains all the basics and shows how to achieve 15 different marbling patterns and variations, plus advanced techniques like using resists to silhouette shapes in the marbling, adding dimension with rubber stamps, embellishing edges with scalloping, and making a three-color progression that allows for careful planning of a color scheme. To begin using your newly marbled fabrics, chose from among seven step-by-step projects, including vests, a pillow, and a quilt (there's also additional information on quilting marbled fabric). A brief gallery of some of the author's lovely wearables and quilts proves that marbled fabric lends itself perfectly to so much more than just scarves. --Amy Handy
