Carving Realistic Flowers in WoodBook - 2001
This beginning-to-advanced-level carving book provides three projects designed to teach the carving skills needed to recreate any flower. Starting with a morning glory, this guide offers step-by-step instructions on how to carve and texture the flower and ideas for creating a beautiful finish with paints. Also included are close-up photographs of real flowers showing the variations in bloom, petals, and leaf groupings, as is a detailed examination of the power tools a woodcarver needs to create realistic carvings, including the bits and burs, flexible shaft machines, handpieces, and dust collectors.
