Library Journal Review

The creation and use of silk "paper" is a new craft that has a great deal of promise. Brightly colored silk tops (unspun hanks of silk fibers) are flattened on nylon net, brushed with adhesive, and dried to form a lustrous, paperlike fabric that can be cut, stitched, and embellished. This book contains detailed instructions for making silk paper, several very elegant projects for evening bags, and a gallery of silk paper works by several Australian and Canadian artists. This book is certain to be of interest to fiber crafters and belongs in fiber arts collections as well as general crafts. (c) Copyright 2010.
