Inspiration for my creations is a Hawaii I
have experienced, having lived here for over 30 years. The sunsets (napo'o ana o
ka'la), the ocean (moana), the land ('aina), the legends.

Paper Dyeing for Collage and Crafts
a book by Gloria Foss and Susan
Who ever heard of dyeing papers in a
pan of colored water that can be used in countless collage and crafts projects and that
wont fade? We hadnt, nor had we read of any such attempt in countless art
books. The absolutely efficient way to color a variety and quantity of papers quickly is
to dip them into a dye bath. That is the basic dyeing technique that the late Les
dAlexandre taught in Hawaii thirty years ago and that we will share with you in this
new book. Please click HERE.
See how I created the collage on the
right from dyeing the papers to the final varnish on
HGTV's "That's Clever!"
