More Information

Photos can be transformed into personal, unique works of art in various ways, using a number of techniques and materials such as brush, paint, and press. But what manual techniques can copy a photo on a canvas or as decoration on a piece of furniture? How can it be inserted into the composition of a painting, or serve as first print for lithography, gravure, or screen printing? This book offers plenty of ideas and suggestions for playful creations with photos, as well as for mixed media techniques, collage, and wax experiments. Some methods are uncomplicated, easy to try at home, and require only very basic resources. Others are more complex and call for specific materials and utensils, as well as a certain expertise. Wherever possible, the book provides alternatives for a simple homemade version. A practical crafting and creativity book for beginners and experts - and for all those who enjoy playful design projects with photographs. Sonja Kägi Studied at the College of (Applied) Arts in Zurich, artist and design pedagogue (IAC), owner of a studio since 1993. Individual and group exhibitions.
