here is a close up of one of Lizz Aston's (sorry she doesn't have a website yet) pieces from the Artist Project show. It's layers of paper that has been printed in a burn out technique - is a technique I've always been interested in, but the toxicity has made me avoid it - has anyone tried this and how do you use it. Also when I was doing Dorie's lace making workshop - lizz brought in this treasure trove of a book - I would love to get my hands on it - she got it at a garage sale.


  1. I have seen that book a gazillion times at the thrift stores. Of course now that I have said that I may never see it again but if I do I will get you a copy.
    I have another book, very vintage that I used when I attempted needle lace. I will bring it to show you on my next visit.
    By the way what sort of trade did you have in mind.
    I am curious so drop me a line.

  2. Wow, that's a striking piece shown in the first photo.
    Just a suggestion - I have found several books on www.abebooks.com that I struggled to find (and afford) elsewhere.

  3. i have that book, too. i thrifted it on tour. boy oh boy does it have every single things in it. i will look out for any other copies while i roam.

  4. thanks everyone - I will try abe and keep hunting the thrift stores.
