Wildlife Designs: Original Patterns for Your Favorite Craft Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Capture the Beauty of Nature and Translate It to Your Favorite Craft! Whether it's the majesty of a buck, the cheekiness of a raccoon, or the peaceful appeal of a loon, images of wildlife are universally appealing to artists and crafters, but it can be a challenge to translate the animation and beauty of nature to your favorite medium. The difficulty can lie in properly illustrating your subject, making a working pattern, or adding the proper tone to make the scene come alive. In Wildlife Designs, award-winning artist Sue Walters eliminates these challenges by offering 30 dynamic North American wildlife designs — each beautifully drawn with line and tonal patterns — and 10 border designs. Whether you're a novice exploring a new craft or an experienced artisan working in your favorite medium, these unique designs and easy-to-follow instructions will guide you through the process of creating realistic or stylized images of wildlife. If you're an artist with a love of nature and animals, Wildlife Designs will make it easy for you to create vibrant and attractive images of wildlife in your favorite craft - or inspire you to broaden your artistic horizons by exploring a whole new medium.

Synopsis:

World-class pyrographer Sue Walters offers over 30 original line and shaded wildlife patterns for pyrography and other crafts. Full-color gallery features art from around the world with artist tips on how to use patterns.

Synopsis:

Versatility is the main attraction of this manual that offers 30 handsome wildlife illustrations and 10 border designs suitable for transfer. Information is included about techniques for transferring both line and tonal patterns, illustrations are marked to show how to isolate parts of the design to use in conjunction with other images or alone, and the use of computers and copiers to modify patterns is also discussed. Although created for pyrography projects, the patterns are suitable for engraving, lino cuts, quilting, relief carving, stained glass, stencils, and tole painting--with color photos of finished pieces in all of the formats gathered in a gallery at the end of the book.<BR>
