CRAFT is the first project-based magazine dedicated to the renaissance happening within the world of crafts. Celebrating the DIY spirit, CRAFT's goal is to unite, inspire, inform and entertain a growing community of highly imaginative people who are transforming traditional art and crafts with unconventional, unexpected, and even renegade techniques, materials and tools.
The theme for CRAFT Volume 04 is costumes, and in the Special Section we profile extraordinary costume makers and show you how to make your own Carmen Miranda-style headdress as well as a sweet disguise for your pooch. The fun just starts there, with 29 awesome projects including making custom car seat covers for your ride, a modern, swanky birdhouse for your yard, and a suede macrame beaded curtain for your pad. We'll show you the ins and outs of spray painted graffiti and moss graffiti, how to harvest squid ink, how to make new candles out of old ones, and much more. We'll even get you started on whittling wood and dyeing fibers using nature's bounty.
