Heat press is a relatively new way of embellishing, decorating, fusing and layering fabrics, and has a limitless range of applications, from fashion to fine-art, and interiors to installation. This book includes exciting new methods using the heat press developed through extensive experimentation. Techniques covered include: flocking, foiling, phototransfer, fusing, sublimation printing, heatsetting and embossing. Each process is explained in detail, with instructions for simple experiments and suggestions for further investigation. The methods featured have a comparatively low impact on the environment, and often utilise recycled materials or offer the opportunity to upcycle. The book has been carefully tailored to be suitable for a variety of skill levels, and includes affordable domestic options - such as heat pressing using an iron - as well as more ambitious and specialist techniques and materials for those with the resources, such as colleges and established textile artists who have access to a heat press.
