Wonderful book. Many detailed photographs and ideas of projects that a beginningstudent can take on. Detailed direction and varied prints, with good explainationof the "how too's". Would purchase from this author again... and again.KC
I have been fiddling around woodcarving without any guidance,just chipping away,And now I have found a true guide that will teach me how to do it properly.Thanks to Lora S.Irish,an artist in the right sense of the word.
I usually have plenty of ideas of my own, but occasionally get a block. I have looked over this book and WOW! I was left wanting to try all kinds of new techniques. This book will be well worn by the time I'm done with it.
Lora Irish provides excellent pictures and patterns in this book, along with what tools are needed to complete a project. Patterns are great for pyrography images, and can be combined with carving to create unique works of art!
This book will keep you carving for months. I had got this book at the library and knew I just had to have it. Also has great patterns for woodburing. This is another book I shared at my carving group and 3 people also purschased it. I have bought 2 ,one for myself and 1 for a friend as a gift. A must have book
I carved a long time ago in school and I have missed it now that I am retired and thought I would have time on my hands, I thought I would take it up again. The book helps to bring back the memories of my school days.
Although I do primarily woodcarving, this book has other types of projects as well. There are mostly woodcarving projects, but there is also a sprinkling of craft projects, such as a decorated box and a quilt. Easy to follow instructions and well thought out content.
I purchased this for doing patterns on gourds and have found it useful and with pretty results.
