Artist Trading Card Workshop by Bernie Berlin

A beautiful technique book dedicated to making artist trading cards.  Artist trading cards, most often referred to as ATC's are little works of art that are usually only 2 1/2" X 3 1/2".  They can be painted, sewn, stamped, embossed, fused, etc., really there is no limit to what can be incorporated into these tiny bits of art.  This book covers most of the popular techniques.  It will ell you what you need for each project, and take you step by step in the process, and it shows photographs of most of the steps.  It covers a wide range of techniques, including, but not limited to the following:  Paint on Paper Towels, Watercolor on Baby Wipes, Leafing Pen Resist, Stencils, Magazine Paper, Phone Book Paper, Transfers, Resin, Stitching, and Digital.  There are many more techniques included that I have not listed here.  If you have an interest in this style of art, you will not be disappointed with this book!
