Bunkers calls her work “alternative printmaking” and tells readers how to turn everyday materials and objects into custom stamps and printmaking tools. …The graphics are colorful and inspiring, the instructions concise and easy to follow. Your probably already have everything you need to get started. - Barbara Delaney “In the Mix”, Cloth Paper Scissors, July/August 2010
Artist and popular workshop instructor Traci Bunkers can turn just about anything into an interesting stamp, printing block, or tool. In this book, she shows readers how to see overlooked, everyday objects in a new way, and how to "MacGyver" them into easy to use printing blocks and tools. Readers learn to create 52 print blocks and stamp tools, all from inexpensive, ordinary, and unexpected materials--string, spools, flip flops, ear plugs, rubber bands, school erasers, and a slew of other repurposed and upcycled items. The book also shows how to use those simple tools to make gorgeous, multi-layered prints and patterns that can be used to enhance journal covers, stationery, fabrics, accessories, and more.
