Book Description

March 22 2011
Lutradur and the New Fibers is the essential guide for mixed-media and fiber artists who are looking to get started with spunbonded textiles.

Spunbonded textiles are man-made fabrics that are strong and flexible but can also be soft and warm to the touch, making them ideal for textile art. They can be washed, dyed, painted, printed, stitched, burned, fused, foiled, stenciled, and slashed with ease.

Lutradur and the New Fibers explores different types of spunbonded textiles—materials such as Lutradur, Evolon, heat-distressable tissue, Tyvek, and Kuninteir. Features include how to color with painting, printing, and dyeing, plus heating, distressing, fusing, and soldering techniques perfect for these spunbonded textiles. Additional techniques include image transfer, foiling, and stamping.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. Nov. 8 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this book hoping it would have some projects and ideas in it that I could try. Lutrador/unspun fibers are interesting and I want to become comfortable incorporating this into my mixed media, however this book albeit covered exactly what the title implies, it's more inclined toward fashion than mixed media collage artworks. That being said, I'm sure these techniques can be incorporated into that body of work. I guess what I am really saying is, I wanted a project/workshop book for lutrador/unspun fiber arts and I bought this in good faith thinking it may provide one or two. There is little project information out on the market in this field, so without a "look inside" I bought it. I may change my mind as I delve deeper into the page descriptions and try to incorporate the ideas into my own...we'll see.

2.0 out of 5 stars Many materials used are unavailable in the US March 25 2011
By suewren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had been looking forward to receiving this book for several months. It finally came. I found many interesting ideas in the book. However, I am very disappointed that several of the fabrics illustrated in the book are not available in the United States. Furthermore, a product utilized in numerous projects and referenced on 23 pages in the index, Print.Ability, is not available in the US either. While some items can be purchased from the author's Web site, it would require paying international shipping charges from the UK and it was unclear what that cost would be.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Road to Heaven is Lined with This Book March 26 2011
By K. Babcock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ever come across a book that makes you want to move in to its pages? A book you would be perfectly content to live in, between the covers? A book you lock yourself in the bathroom to read (because it's the only place your teenagers won't follow you...usually) - and not care what your new boyfriend thinks you're in there doing? THIS IS THAT BOOK.

As a devout fan of Lesley Riley, the Queen Mother of Lutradur and all things spunbound (and TAP - don't forget TAP!), I was really excited when I learned this book was coming out. Although I love and adore Ms Riley - as well as Margaret Beal (ohhh, her book is fantastic as well!), I knew there was enough room in my heart for another master of spunbonded materials. I wasn't familiar with Leslie Cotterill or her work - and the bar had been set extremely high by the first two artists I mentioned - but I was still excited to get my paint-stained hands on this book. I pre-ordered it with all the excitement of a six year-old at Christmas. The countdown to it's arrival had begun.

It seemed like it took forever, but after looking through it I can honestly say the wait was well worth it. I would have waited another 3 months if I knew what I would be receiving. This book is not just wonderful. Not even fantastic. It is...BREATHTAKING!!

I own a lot of art/craft books. A lot. It takes something special to impress me. And I've got to say, this book didn't impress me. IT KNOCKED MY SOCKS OFF!! The in-depth instructions and clear points & examples are amazing. Ms Cotterill has you covered - whether you've been [almost] stalking Ms Riley or Ms Beal for a long time (prove it), or this whole realm is new to you. There is so much delicious eye candy within the beautifully glossy pages...so many phenomenal samples and ideas. The luscious textures on page...who am I kidding? On just about every page in the book. The dresses on 51 & 69 - and 115. The shoe on 58. The painting. Stamping. Sewing. Inks. Use of the soldering iron. And heat gun. Crystals. Mica. Stitching. Kunin felt. Evelon. Lutradur. Print.Ability (Ink Aid). Foils. Transfers. Inkjet printing. Oh - did I mention the handbag? Mmm...the glorious bag/purse on 76 is worth the price of the book alone.

Since its grand arrival 24 hours ago, I haven't been able to put it down. The more I see, the more I drool. Now I need a new copy because it looks like someone dropped mine in the bathtub. (Ok, not really.) I do however, have a new wildly creative, massively talented, sublimely wonderful artist to [stalk] follow. Ms Cotterill's book is phenomenal. She has gone from being totally off my radar to joining the ranks of the almighty Ms Riley & Ms Beal. SPECTACULAR. If I could have given this book 100 stars, I don't think it would have conveyed my love and adoration for it. I'm off to get some additional supplies - and then I'll beat feet to the studio. There isn't any place I'd rather be with my new book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the beginner May 8 2011
By Happy Quilter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yes, the book is inspiring. Yes, it is informative. Yes, the processes are cutting edge. The book is not for the novice. The instructions are "high level" and presume the reader has knowledge and the specific language skill to understand the text. The products are obtainable but I would think long and hard about buying the supplies for fear I would not be able to figure out how to be successful with the projects.

This item is probably okay, I just don't think that I understand it. I tried it and the results weren't what I expected. But for me, I like something bright and crisp in view and this isn't meant to be. Someone else may find the finished result just what they wanted, but for me it just wasn't working for the project I had in mind.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but materials used not available in US Oct. 21 2011
By IT'S BY DESIGN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What a great book with beautiful projects. I can't wait to try many of these techniques to add to my art quilts. But it's going to cost me plenty. The only way I could get everything except the Lutradur was to order it from the author's website. Wow. I can't wait to see those shipping charges. I think there should be a HUGE warning right on the cover of the book about this little "problem". I probably would not have purchased the book had I known, but now that I own it. I'm going to pay the price to do the projects. I do plan to contact various sources to try to find out why we can't get these products in the USA. Truly. This is crazy!
