Techniques of Creative Woodcarving - Ian Norbury

Stobart Davies, 1994, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Wraps rubbed at the edges. Previous owners inscription to reverse of upper wrap. Heavy knock at head of spine.

A thoroughly practical approach to the art of figure carving. It takes the form of a progressively structured course of twelve projects, starting with simplified and familiar forms, progressing to complex and technically sophisticated pieces. This is a book to suit all levels of ability: for the beginner who can start with a minimum of tools and consequently with the minimum outlay for equipment; for practising woodcarvers with a good level of competence and skill there is a range of designs specifically structured for the improvement of techniques with detailed treatment of eyes, hair, etc., and individual surface effects. and for the experienced carver, advanced projects provide the basis for design possibilities as well as the dedication necessary to achieve the desired result.
